The Baldwin metal stand adds an extra flourish to your plate or art. The stand is 11" tall. Pictured are a 10" plate and a 9" square picture. We recommend items in the 8.5" to 11.5" range. If an item is shorter than the stand height, you will see a little of the decorative stand at the top. If you have a question about which size to use, just email or call us and we will be happy to assist you.
