Neck Less Glass Floor Lamp Shades and Torchiere Shades
Floor lamp shades fall into two categories. Pipe fitters often called torchiere shades will have a fitter or pipe that will fit into the lamp itself. The weight of the shade and this type of fitting will hold the shade in place. Newer floor lamp shades will have a neck less opening 1 1/2" to fit over a light bulb, this type of fitter will often have a ring that attaches from the inside of the glass shade to hold it in place.
