"Marcel, That should be good news to the OP since 200mm is very close to the actual size (approx 202-203 mm) of the original Imperial globe.  That is only about 3mm smaller in diameter.  That is what Tom S. ended up using and he said it…"

Imperial Restoration - Glass Specs

Hey everyone, I am currently working on my imperial restoration and accidently cracked the glass on the cylinder. I am working with a company to rebuild me another glass cylinder.

Hope everyone is doing well. …See More
