    I have two antique chandeliers that probably date back to the early 1900s. The original shades are missing from one of my chandeliers. A tenant bought some shades for it, but they aren't a good fit. Can someone make a recommendation? I'm having trouble figuring out what the style should be. The original shades on the second intact chandelier shown are opal glass bell shaped, almost 8" in diameter, which is a size really hard to find. Should I look for something similar for the other chandelier? The only thing I can find that wide in opal glass is sheffield style, which is probably not the best. I don't even know what style the chandelier is. Would love to hear from someone knowledgeable on this subject.

      Thank you TallCakes! Too bad they aren't selling on that website at the moment. Still a good reference.
