broken chandelier globe

Oooh Woe Is Me!
I bought an antique light fixture off Craig's list. The husband of the woman who sold it to me wasn't the brightest light bulb on the tree, but he was quite helpful.
So helpful, he backed the heavy iron knobby ceiling canopy down in the large basket shaped globe, unbeknowst to me.
On the ride home, it knocked some chips out of the edge of the flat bottom of the globe and when I went to pick up the globe, the whole flat bottom fell off.
When I talked to the lighting restoration people in town they told me it was toast. Any glue would rot over time and eventually fail.
Anyone know of any options out there? Pretty much the whole chadelier is the large globe, which resembles a basket with flowers on it and impossible to replace, or at least impossible to replace economically.

Re: broken chandelier globe

my fist thoughts would be to contact someone who blows glass. you see them heating glass and sticking two pieces of glass together all the time such as a handle on a goblet
