"Handsome reproduction shades were everywhere...... None of the patterns were similar to the shade I had broken....My old shade had a deep neck that fitted inside the base without further support. Would the screw shades fit? And would it be a problem if the base of the shade was an 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch bigger (or smaller) than the old one? These questions had answers. And I found them at www.lampglass.nu.......I clicked on How to Measure and was miraculously transported to a step-by-step explanation of how to determine what style of shade was right for my base....."

How to replace part of a glass shade on a torchiere lamp
Q: One of our grandchildren knocked over a floor lamp recently, breaking the top part of the lampshade. We are trying to find a replacement. The broken piece was a three-inch-high glass ring that tapers from 12½ inches across at the top to eight inches across at the bottom, fitting onto a metal ring with another piece of glass below. The lamp doesn’t show the manufacturer’s name, only the SKU.
A: Many styles of replacement glass shades for torchiere lamps are available. But scrolling through numerous online catalogues didn’t turn up anything like what you need. The shades typically taper down to an opening only a few inches wide, not eight inches.
That leaves you with three options: Commission a custom-blown shade. Hire a glass-blowing shop to customize a replacement shade so it fits your lamp, replace the whole lamp or shop replacement shades at lampglass.nu
