Finding specific socket for Tiffany style lamp

Looking for a standard socket base , with the wires running thru the nipple and screw threads on the outside as shown . The glass shade hangs upside down , with a plastic retainer srewing around the outside of the socket base to hold it on . Can't find this one anywhere .
Thanks in advance

Ask at a shop that repairs lamps, or a store that sells lamp parts. I would show it to the staff at my local hardware store.

You may not find that style but there are many out there.

Google is your friend. Search threaded lamp holders.

Here is a Link to a socket that should work for you

This is the main site

Also is this a hardwired fixture or a portable lamp, and why do need to replace that socket?

Thanks , that one should do-had tried several large lamp stores around here , got a lot of blank looks . If the big box stores don't have , you out of luck , no more independant hardware stores around .

Yeah, we've lost some around here too. But Google can be your friend (sometimes):
