This round glass dome is actually 9 3/4″ diameter. The mold is 10 but as it cools it becomes smaller.
Modern bases offered for glass domes today are made of composition materials. They are quite presentable and usually stained walnut in color. We have dozens of old antique bases with a groove for the dome to sit in and feet on the bottom. We are happy to supply an antique base with many of the glass domes in stock.
Round glass domes come in a variety of sizes. We stock round glass domes starting at 1 7/8”, 3”, 4”, 4 ½”,5 ½”, 8”, 10”, 12” and 15”. We also have sizes in between in some cases to fit special applications.
We have the ability to cut any new glass dome to your height specification for a nominal charge. If you don’t see your exact height needed contact us and we will try to help.
Most antique bases are painted black. We offer the option of covering the top and the groove with velvet which give a very nice antique look and copies the vintage of many of the original bases. We offer colors of velvet such as red, blue, green, black and antique red. The antique red is the most popular as is the black.
