Much to my dismay I broke the globe on an old lamp in my home and thought I would not be able to get a replacement, I found this one on amazon and could not believe that it would work. The first one shipped and arrived completely shattered, the packing was dreadful, only a few sheets of newspaper surrounded it and it wasn't 'anchored' in the box, hence the shattering. The company were great though, shipped a second one immediately and it arrived in prefect condition. The packing the second time around wasn't much better than the first; I don't know how the globe survived the US postal system. The globe is a perfect replacement for my older one.

Great replacement globe
By Susan E. Zinner
I have an antique floor lamp I love and the globe recently broke. I had a hard time finding a replacement locally and found this one on amazon. The original pattern was a hob nail pattern. While I couldn't find an exact match, this one is old enough looking, that I am happy with the replacement. My advice is to measure very carefully--the fitter, the inside diameter, outside diameter, etc. to make sure you are getting the size you need. The globe arrived packed well in plastic with lots of packing materials (Styrofoam peanuts) and I thought the price was reasonable. Very happy with the replacement! (Just hope that the dog doesn't knock this one over in the next thunderstorm!).

Not PERFECT fit but close enough
By Daniel R.
A child relative knocked over a beautiful and seriously old standing lamp from downsizing in-laws. Engineers like me measure dimensions once, think, measure dimensions again, think again, and repeat five more times. The selection of this order was hinged on total price after certainty of fit risk. It was completely successful in packaging and delivery. The fit to the metal base diameter was correct however the diffuser glass base had a retention lip which interfered with insertion past lamp's retention tabs and was insufficiently low to clear them. I reluctantly bend the lamp's retention tabs clear. The lamp's retention screws do not quite clear the diffuser's retention lip, but it is close enough to function. Not a PERFECT replacement but it was available and close enough.
