How to find a place that will make a custom glass shade?
May 15, 2017 7:53 AM   Subscribe

I ordered this shade on the chairish website, and it arrived looking like this ...WEEP!

I really don't want to give up on this light, but I haven't had luck finding some place that could fabricate a custom shade for it. The glass is plain white frosted; the shade is (was) egg-shaped, about 12 inches tall and maybe nine inches at widest diameter.

Anyone have an idea whom I could contact? Price is not big issue. I have not been able to find another antique pendant similar to this one, and I love it. I'd be willing to ship the brass frame to a manufacturer so that the shade could be fitted to it.

Thanks Askme!

I had great results with Michael Davis Glass to replace a glass pitcher with metallic fittings similar to your lamp.

Whoa, what? That place is about 12 blocks from my house. Will definitely check them out. Thanks, at!

Still welcome any other recommendations!
