Often time you will see a braided chord around the base of a glass dome. This provides a finish effect for a dome. Sometimes when a glass dome gets broken and an exact size dome can not be found the braded chord is placed into the groove and the replacement glass dome fits just inside the chord or just outside of it. The chord has the effect of holding the glass dome in place and again gives a very pleasing effect.
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.
