There may be no crying over spilled milk, but you can do a lot of crying over a broken antique light shade. But finding a replacement may not be impossible, thanks to Renaissance Antique Lighting.

For almost 20 years, this Rhode Island company has been studying old lighting fixtures from the late 1800s to the early 1900s and replicating them.

Restoration services and reconditioned antique fixtures and shades are also available. The company will also custom-design a replacement for that one-of-a-kind fixture that you thought was irreplaceable.
