411


Sometimes the things we need seem 911 when they are really only 411.  I am trying to take the emergency out of the situation by starting here first.


I have not so much as googled as I am avoiding what could be hours of clicking and checking.  I was thinking my designer friends just might have a resource that could help.  I bought a vintage star lantern like this a week or so ago.  What I need, the emergency, is the canopy.  That piece that fits against the ceiling.  Anyone?

Image, Veranda, July/August 2011, design by Andrew Raquet; photography Max Kim-Bee.  The fixture pictured here is Charles Edwards.

Glad I can help in your hour of need. Here's a great source for those. Scroll to the bottom and there are several options.

Hope this helps!

Looks like it could be quite easily be made out of tin (you know you can). Or, try one of those Mexican craft shops.

www.lampsandlights.co.uk but they're not star shaped. Is that important? E x

You'd probably like that star canopy, too. Very special canopies like that are so hard to find. Here are sone standard ones, I do wish you luck!

A quality metal fabricator could custom make this for you if you can't find it on the market.

Have you tried a salvage company/yard in your area? If not, there are various restoration companies who have odd lots. Call or email me if you cant find one online that has lighting parts. Have you made any new needlepoint for your new home?

Ah, it looks like Charles supplies canopies as well:

Good luck!

Take it to a lamp repair shop and see if they can get one for you.
