This frame is transitional for those who want a classic empire but want to edge it up a bit. It measures 6" top diameter, 12" bottom diameter and 12" slant. The washer is flush to the top and requires a 12" harp. Call for guidance as to where the lightbulb should sit within the shade. One can't have the bulb too close to the maize liner for it will be a bright spot and may burn or damage the silk.
