Choosing your replacement bobeche/drip trays

IMG-20141220-00210

For whatever reason you have decided to replace one or more of your bobeche/drip trays but other than matching the pattern of existing bobeche on your chandelier or the style you have decided on what do you need to know before purchasing?

With the right information ready choosing should not be too difficult or complex so here are a few tips to help you in your choice:-

  1. One of the most important dimensions is the centre hole – too small and it may not fit on your chandelier arm, too large and  it may slip over.  Don’t worry if you find the ideal one and the centre hole does not match as sometimes we may be able to extend the centre hole or may have a filler insert.
  2. How large is your existing bobeche?  Measure across at the widest point to get the dimension in millimetres
  3. How deep is your bobeche? Not quite as easy a measurement to take but measure from the highest point to the lowest – if you find a suitable match you can always email us our part number and ask us to confirm how we measured to ensure you are measuring in the same way.
  4. How many pin holes do you want your replacement to have – again on occasion we can drill pin holes but this is dependant on the design of the bobeche
