This is a very nice, slightly smaller shade in an unusual finish and shape. It's not quite a crackle finish, but it isn't smooth either. It has a sort of raised pattern. The color is gorgeous, and it's perfect for a lamp that needs a shade just a little bit smaller than most of the 3" rim fitter models available. It's sort of a square shape, but the corners are rounded, and so is the top. There's someone out there that needs this particular shade!
