Best place to find these is Pamela's web site link attached, I think it's called Rotterdam but can't remember maker but it will be there.

Hi Pat,
congratulations on your Rotterdam lamp base! the shade presumably is not Walther I am afraid. Rotterdam base used to carry a Rotterdam bowl like this:

without 3 feet but with one 'cork'

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

Hi Pamela. I am wondering if the lamp base was sold in England without the original shade because my friend has an identical lamp base with an identical shade. She got hers about 5 years ago.  It seems very odd.

it is so sad that Tony Hayter does not reply!
He knew ALL about these!
Your shade looks like a replika really - but matching in every respect nearly
