I'm confused. You said "source for domes" but the link seems to be for LED lights.

Yep, but no indication that the dome is included in the purchase.

The whole cloche costs $11.88 at my Walmart.
Fits great. It is just slightly less round on the top than the original dome.
UPC 37916933627 Gerson 93362 - 10.25" Battery Operated Micro LED Copper Base Clear Glass Cloche with Timer (93362) - The world's largest UPC database
The Mainstays (Walmart house brand) label says it's 5.5 in dia x 10.25 in H (13.9 cm x 26 cm).
Gentle, steady pressure removes it from the base. It's secured with a very small amount of some form of construction adhesive.
Went down and got one at Walmart. Package says it's 10.25" by 5.5" but that includes the base. The dome itself is only 9" by 4.75". Too small for my standard size Kundo clocks.

Sorry, guys.

It's a cloche and brass plated plastic base that includes a couple dozen white LED lights on a copper-colored wire and has another length of copper colored wire comingled into a randomly scrunched bundle inside the dome.
It's meant as an accent piece to provide some mood lighting. The dome comes off the base relatively easy and is a good fit for the Kaiser Universe clock, for which domes from the standard suppliers can be quite costly.
It won't fit a Kundo or Schatz or any other mechanical or quartz clocks that I'v seen. Just the Kaiser.

Thanks Martin,
I don't have a Kaiser clock, but I bought one of these "Cloche's" yesterday, just in case I get lucky someday and find a nice Kaiser that is missing its dome. Until that happy day comes along, it can function as an interesting nightlight, as the designer intended. Thanks again for finding this.
