Where to find a lamp


Sledgehammer

Recommended Posts

I have three of these wall mounted oil lamp holders. 2 match exactly and one is slightly smaller. The one pictured is 5-3/4” across. I need to find a source for a lamp that will fit in the holder. This would have a rounded fount. Any ideas?  
My grandparents had one like this when I was a kid that I thought was interesting is the reasoning for me messing with this. I haven’t had any luck finding a proper lamp to fit in the holders.  I will sandblast and paint the holder.

Thank you for the link. I really think these had a rounded bottom that I cannot seem to find anywhere online for reference. The holders are concave and most of the fonts such as shown there on that site have a step down in them that won’t fit what I have.

We have one of those little solar do-dads at the mountain like that and the lamp shade wobbles when the lights come on.

Maybe call them and ask??

That’s probably no help, but it’s been hanging in my grandmother’s house as long as i can remember, she was into antiques, but it could also be a replica.

Thanks. Looks Like the reproductions I have seen but could easily be 10,000 years old.

You know Barbara Eden is still alive. Born in 1931.
