I already posted about this in the Vintage wish list, and I don't want to be obnoxious and repeat myself but I will. I apologise in advance if I am breaking a rule.
Hi Fellow Vintage Lovers,
I have a cut crystal lamp with a cut crystal shade that rests on a tripod type of shade holder.
Unfortunately, some one broke one of the arms off at a show, and I need to find a replacement tripod. I cannot find the original arm to have it soldered, as another arm was, so I would like to find a complete one.
I have added some pictures for you to view. Any and all help in hunting down this piece would be greatly appreciated.
The center hole is approximately ½ inch in diameter and the ring is about ¾ of an inch in diameter
The one good arm is about 4 1/16 inches long.
The cut glass lamp shade is about 8 1/8th inches in diameter.
You can see some of the shade in the second to last picture.

I'm not sure where you'll find an exact match or even one that is decorative like the original, but these are called 'spiders' and are sold as parts for oil lamps... here's a link to one parts catalogue site, maybe you can find more with Google http://www.rcchre.com/CatPages/ADL/Hardware/H269.html
Ok... here are some that are a bit more decorative http://www.rcchre.com/CatPages/ADL/Hardware/H269_1A.html
...and here are some without the rings http://www.haroldrandenterprises.com/CatPages/ADL/Hardware/H270_10....
Thanks for the info Marni. Not sure if the oil lamp spiders will work but I'll look into it.
