Good evening
I am in the process of trying to fix a green Deco star lamp shade onto a green Rotterdam base and wondered if anyone on here could help please?
By todays modern fixings how would one fix a chrome gallery to the urn of the lady.On original lamps I have noticed old double ended small fittings that screw onto the urn and gallery.
Obviously if I don't have one of these what would be the next best thing to fix the gallery onto the urn of the base please?
Thanks everyone for your time

Nige, this is my poor quick shot only, but I believe this fixing and shade are original.

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.

Pamela,Frank....thanks so much!
That photo looks amazing in green! I adore the shade.
I will take a look at Christopher Wrays....went in their years ago....it never crossed my mind this time!
I have an amber Rotterdam with its original fittings so I just rewired that one....this green one doesn't have the fittings so am doing it from scratch!
