Well, based on this page (which is a pirate version of some other page whose URL I can't recall), the bigger frame you mention is a near perfect match for what the Germans call "Dadant [modifiziert], Brutraum" (lit. "Modified Dadant brood frame") and your smaller frame is a near perfect match for what they call the "Langstroth, flach, 2/3" (lit: "2/3-reduced Langstroth").

An 11 1/4" tall frame is a Dadant deep.  A 6 1/4" frame is a medium or Illinois.  I assume you are measuring from end bar to end bar and not the length of the top bar.  That would be 17 5/8"
