Check in an automotive store.
If it was mine I think I would rewire it to use reguler candilarbra bulbs and do away with the transformer.

Have you tried Banana Republic?

Or A&W for a mini corn dog?

It looks like a small neon lamp,
Probably part of a flickering candle lamp !

What is that end? Some sort of coaxial sort of plug? Yeah, I'm imagine it's a neon bulb, sort of a flickering candelabra setup? Goooooooood luck ever finding a matching replacement. You'd probably be a lot better off re-wiring the fixture for bulbs you CAN find. Perhaps by replacing the whole faux candlestick portion completely.

Thank you very much for the responses. I have definitely thought about re-wiring for regular voltage. The base screws out and looks more like a normal screw, but has a tip protruding from end. I have attached a couple more pictures that could help. Thanks again for the responses.

That is super weird. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen a lot of unusual lamps and electrical connectors. I would not expect to find a replacement.

I worked in a lighting store for several years before starting in this trade. In all that time I've never seen anything like that.

If it is low voltage how do you know and how is it wired? Any idea how old it is?

It is definately a variation of a flickering candle lamp,
I have not seen that version before,
So you might have to hunt around,
heres what i first thought it was.

But I still think that small part,
is a neon lamp with some color on it.
If you can get the small glass envelope out,
with out breaking it, you could replace it.
Or you could just buy a new neon lamp
take it to a candle maker and get it dipped in yellow wax.
dont worry it wont melt as neons dont gererate any heat.
