Converting Lamp from Shade to Globe

Is it possible to convert a Victorian lamp from using a shade to using a globe instead?

It could be possible. We'd need to see a picture or two of the lamp. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

Here is the lamp. The rod goes all the way through and comes out the back.

Have you picked out the style of globe you want ?
The piece below the globe can be added to your light.

Ya just a standard white globe like you have pictured in the smaller picture. Does that just attach to the threaded rod?

You would unscrew that brass socket assembly and add a glass lamp shade holder and then reinstall the same socket.
