No idea but will have a guess to replace the whole light with Caravan Strip light loads on e-bay like these

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V…%3A2334524

will be a lot cheaper and give out a much better light taken a lot less out of the battery.

They are already fitted with LED, and the light is good enough, but trying to bring it back to the original look, just the covers are damaged.

Would there have been a halogen type double ended lamp in it originally

I think there was, they have replaced all the bulbs with LED and the light is great but the covers are broken and would like to replace them with simular ones.

It looks like the glass cover I have seen on many floor lamps with a light upwards and a smaller one downwards. It’s the cover over the lamp of the upward facing light you require. Loads of them being dumped as the dimmer on them fails. Keep your eyes peeled

Ok. Similar shade set up. A separate lamp In Each side with the glass shade I’d look for the above

Thinking to look original does not mean have to be so
So thinking outside the Box how about using Acrylic tubing.
Found these but must be others

you could either cut yourself or maybe the supplier could do it for you. Getting the original look is easy either use a palm sander or one of those spray paints you can use on clear glass. much easier to drill as well
What do you think

yes' we think that's the way we may have to go' and give a light sanding to give the distressed opaque effect.
