Help, please: Need porcelain repair on very, thing antique piece???

If I knew how to insert this photo I would, however, this is the idea of what my mother owns:
Ant. Gone with the Wind Lamp Jumbo Size Man & Woman 32` - eBay (item 180492926439 end time Apr-18-10 15:38:36 PDT)

She has a very thin porcelain globe on top that is on a rather large Gone with the Wind style handpainted lamp (like in the photo). The housekeeper before I got here broke it and it was glued together okay, but someone who specializes in repairing porcelain antiques could repair it better maybe--even if they can't remove it due to the glue now, maybe they could paint it to match and hide the seams that were glued I'm thinking.

Does anyone here know of a specialist that works with antique porcelain repair?

I'm not 100percent sure, but I suspect that is glass rather than porcelain.

It is thin GLASS!!!!

Know what? You are right. It is frosted glass. Can't believe I said porcelain, but, then again, can't believe I used the word "thing" in the title instead of thin. I am not perfect as you can tell...sigh...somebody is overly tired.
