    Here are some of my orphan fairy lamp parts, which I hope to find matching parts for someday.
    The swirl spatter/stripe glass dome is the largest fairy lamp dome I've found, at 11 cm tall & 9 cm wide at the base.
    The yellow pull up threaded dome is 8 cm across the base.
    The cased white/yellow satin posy ring base is 18 cm wide & the space for the dome is 8 cm wide inside. It has uranium in the white layer. The scalloped cut edge is interesting.
    Cased white & blue spatter cup base with a swirl pattern & applied leaves is 9 cm across, 8 cm across the inner. I bought this many years ago & it had a blue DQMOP satin dome on it...I did find a more correct base for that so now this base needs the right dome as well.

      I did express an interest in seeing your fairy lamp parts in spatter glass, so thank you. I've never seen the décor in image one but the base in image four is Welz. IMAsapp has posted at least one S.Clarke lamp made by Welz. Look at the ribbed balls on the vase in the link below. Clear leafy feet are also commonplace on Welz glass from the Victorian period.

      Many thanks for the Welz ID on the spatter base! It would look great with the correct dome. The pale blue & white spatter on that vase is quite distinctive. The big one is definitely an unusual spatter...I have not seen another spatter pattern quite the same, with pink & blue swirl stripes & dull yellow-brown flecks. Most of the other spatters you can see time & again on various items (there's a particular spatter in pink, ochre yellow & brownish maroon that I have on a jug, a bud vase & a basket...I think it is a Welz spatter).
      I will post some more fairy lamp oddments soon.

      On the lowest shelf of your glass cabinet, the basket at the back, which is mainly pink and has a thorn handle is Welz.

      Interesting assortment. The first on the left is new to me. I can recall seeing that pattern before. The Nailsea appears to be "twisted Nailsea" but I can't be sure from the photo. If so, finding a matching base could be problematic. I have seen the cut rim base before in blue and red but I have never seen the matching shade. The blue spatter is a nice base and if you are younger than I, you just may find the matching shade.
