    @Brian camp

    Short answer: Yes.

    Long answer: You can make it yourself if you’ve got the right gear; or, there are makers of mica globes out there...

    Cheers

    Tony

    Brian, there is a gentleman here in the US state of Ohio who makes mica globes and they are great!:D/ He's made a number of them for some of my very early Coleman lanterns.:) If you have all the measurements, I'm sure he could help.

    Yes and Fred has made Tilley Mica globes for me and possibly one or two others. Means he probably already has the measurements. He is worth the expense because his repro micas are superb. Also mail cost is minimal because they weigh very little. Email him fredkuntz@adelphia.net
