Each lamp shade has its own distinct style. For silk and fabric shade the most common is a washer fitter. A washer fiitter looks like a washer with three wires extending from the center washer to the side of the shade. Better quality shade with this type of fitter will have a banding along the top and bottom. Often in larger shade the side wires will also be covered in the same material to give the shade a finished look.
Fabric shades sometimes sit on a glass bowl or diffuser. If you lamp has a larger fitter with three thumb screws if most likely fits a diffuser. A fabric or silk shade will rest on top of the diffuser. The may be knotches on the wires that fit on the diffuser top to stabalize the lamp on the shade.
Some floor lamps have a very unusual fitter the bulb will point downward. The shade for this lamp will have a large 1 1/2" opeing that fits or screw onto the light bulb. This type of shade has what is refered to as a uno fitter. Floor lamps that have a glass shade with a bulb that points to the floor are bridge lamps. The shade is often held in place with three thumb scres
Smaller shade. can either clip on shade that fit to a standare light bulb or a topedo or chandelier chip. This type of clip if slightly oval or elongated to fit to the smaller bulb.
