Replacing Minka Lavery Light Glass

I need to find a replacement "globe" for a bathroom bar light made by Minka Lavery, Model 5794-84. The part number for the glass is G5792. Because this model has been discontinued for at least 2 years, the manufacturer does not have it in stock.
Where can I find a replacement "globe" (actually a cone)?
Pictures can be viewed at: Picasa Web Albums - John - Shirley's Lig...

Thanks,
John

Depends on how important the light fixture is. Look at Ebay 260610265463 for an example. $60 for an entire fixture, but it may not be an exact match as the glass firing would have to be close to match perfectly.

I am thinking you may have to buy 4 globes if you can find some with a similar shape that will work. You might try Lightolier.

Chandler,
Thanks for the lead on e-bay. The posting closed yesterday but I have an e-mail in to the seller to see if it is still available.

CasualJoe,
Thanks for the suggestion. Our backup plan is to buy a whole new light fixture for the hall bathroom and use the 4 "globes" on it as replacements for the missing one in the main bathroom. A search on Lightolier's web site for Minka Lavery returned no hits.

Hope you find what you need....but I have to ask...how the heck do you change bulbs on that? Is the glass cut out in the back or something?

Vic, I looked at the original light, and it seems the candelabra bulbs' holders loop up and over the top of the globe and shine inside it. Not sure if the op's does that or not. I think the globe is a solid cup.

Yeah, I see that...but it seems like it would be a huge pain to reach down into the globe past the socket to replace it....just kinda wondered. If ya have big hands or sausage fingers...forget it...

Changing Bulbs

Changing the bulbs is really quite simple since the metal spiral holder, shown here removed from the light bar,

sits in a bracket on the main bar and can easily be lifted out, exposing the bulb.

This photo shows the light bar with the spiral holder removed. The mounting bracket is behind the bulb.

I just checked my e-bay account for a message from the provider that Chandler provided and much to my pleasant surprise, e-bay presented me a picture of exactly what I needed from another supplier, laforgelighting, e-bay ref # 350267557832. I just ordered a replacement fixture so this forum can claim another success story!

Thanks everyone,

John
