What do they call this desk-lamp part? [See details].

Asked by ETpro (34557points) June 5th, 2012

We picked up a halogen desk/table lamp at Goodwill. It needs a bulb, but I have a spare. It’s also missing the circular, frosted-glass bulb cover. The three metal clamps for the cover are there, but the glass is missing. What is that cover, like the one on this image, called?

Or maybe lense cover?

@augustlan @marinelife & @Judi Thanks. I need to tack a name on the thing to go search for a replacement part.

If you are unable to track down the part, a window shop could make one of tempered, blasted glass. It would be thicker and tougher.

@majorrich Thanks. So far the search is not finding anything. I might have to have one made.
