I need a new glass shade and locknut for a living room wall sconce.
I do not know the name brand but I have attached a photo of the
Does anyone have any ideas where I can get one or what name brand this
If it is of help the fixture uses a g9 bulb and probably came from
Home Depot. (Which cannot provide any help in-store when presented
with the sample locknut and doesn't carry any fitting shades).
A real hardware store should be able to assist with that. There are the
drawers of "normal" nuts, bolts, etc., and then there are the drawers of
miscellaneous stuff that makes you think you've died and gone to heaven
because they actually have what you need.

Lamp parts are typically pipe thread sizes, a relic from the original
fixtures that were converted gas lights.
That looks like a 1/4" NPT locknut (about 1/2")
These days that sometimes gets pretty sloppy because of manufacturing
tolerances or it gets rounded off to a metric size that is close.
*The locknut can probably be found at a lamp shop or lighting store. I
think Lowes and Home Dept carry a small selection of parts as well. A
fix-it shop may have something. One place I used to go in NJ when I
couldn't find it anywhere else would just pull out small boxes of parts and
dump them on the counter. I always found what I was looking for there. I
heard that they are closed now :-(
As for the glass shade; unless you have the manufacturers name you are SOL.
There are so many lighting manufacturers out there it wouldn't be humanly
possible to find every catalog and try and match it up. Home Depot
sometimes buys up lots and once they are gone that is the end of them. It
may just be easier to replace the fixture.
OMG, I remember those being in the doctor's office when I was a kid.
Fortunately this means they probably aren't made with metric hardware.
Parts should be findable at a local lamp shop and most hardware stores
carry the parts. You could also salvage something off an old lamp
picked up at Goodwill.
