The proportions are not the same but here are two that are similar. Not cheap though.

That first one is pretty close. I wonder if anybody knows who made the originals or what they're called... THANKS

I have several lighting catalogs, here are some similar fixtures:

This is the problem: most of these are now acrylic lensed with compact fluorescent lamps. They are used in commercial stairwells and such. Energy codes require low consumption. Halo used to make a very similar light, it's in an old catalog I have (H2708) but does not come up in any searches, including at Halo's own site. I bet Lightolier made the originals, their only similar current product is compact fluorescent:

None of these have the silver base. If the one above is really spun aluminum, it is not over priced.
