    This Burmese glass fairy lamp took several years to put together from spare parts, & was well worth the wait. The four cornered base came first, a flea market find. Then a number of years later, I found the dome in an antique shop...& a few months later, the clear Clarkes cup from eBay.
    It was so satisfying to be able to put it together! Now I am on the lookout for a variety of other fairy lamp parts to suit several other domes in MOP satin glass, spatter glass, pull up theaded glass, as well as various bases. The main parts I am trying to find are the clear cups in the larger size...they are quite elusive compared to the smaller ones which do seem to turn up regularly on eBay.

      Patience may be its own reward, but so much better when it brings a beautiful glass classic!
      I'd be very interested in seeing the spatter glass dome.

      Many thanks sklo42! And I'll get a photo of the spatter dome posted soon. It's the biggest fairy lamp dome I have & will need a large candle cup to match it.

      Good job! Not all the Webb Burmese bases are acid stamped, but if they are, they are more often found by touch than by looking. If it is stamped, you will want to know. I'll watch for large lamp cups for you.
