I finally have this set in my home in Florida. There are two parts that I don't have and I hope that you may have them and are willing to sell them to me.

1st Item is the perforated metal screen that covers the bottom of the cabinet. It is stamped metal and I don't know the type of metal, maybe aluminum. Mine is missing. It is approximately 8" X 13". The picture below shows the screen with a red arrow pointing to the screen.

Thank you Bob Andersen for allowing me to use your picture below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ6nWQ ... 9ji2FUNYwg

2nd item is the left bottom cast brass/bronze attachment for the safety glass. Note, there is a left and right. I need the left side. I now see why the attachment is missing; the wood has split and the screw came out.

Note that the screw would be coming in from the other direction, 90 degrees to the left in this first photo. The next three pictures are of the right side, all the same piece, rotated to show detail. Again, I need a left side please!

Don-
For the bottom screen, do a google or ebay search for <perforated metal sheet> you can specify aluminum or steel, hole size and pattern and metal gauge. Many suppliers will cut to size, and sell by the square inch.

Hi Don, I took the corner piece off of my set and duplicated it and then casted a duplicate.The original piece looks like bronze to me as it has a distinct reddish hue. Not having any bronze I mixed 75% copper with brass hoping to get close to the color of the original. Unfortunately it looks brassy but may develop a patina in time. If you want it you can have it. Let me know.
