This round walnut finish base has a groove for the dome to rest in. The dome that fits this base can be any height up to 8″.
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.
A good source for antique glass domes can be found in antique stores. Sometimes you find a store that has several and others who are afraid of their fragile nature and refuse to carry them. The ones who think they are fragile are willing to give a good discount just to get rid of them.
Many of the movies produced today have glass domes and antique clocks as furniture display items in the background. Once you appreciate their quality your eye will catch them in the movie.
