What kind of mount is this?

I have a chandelier with an unusual mount. There are three notches, (see pic), evenly spaced around a cylindrical structure, which are supposed to attach to another structure with three screws sticking out of it.

The three-screw structure anchors into the ceiling box and protrudes out slightly to allow the chandelier to attach to it. However, a former tenant threw away the three-screw structure when he removed the chandelier to replace it with one of his own--with out permission of course. So now, I am stuck with a seemingly un-mountable chandelier.

The diameter of the chandelier attachment structure is 5.5-inches.

Is anyone familiar with this style of mount? What is the missing three-screw structure called? Does this type of mounting have a name?

Any suggestions on how I should proceed would be greatly appreciated!

That is a proprietary mount. You need to replace it with the original part.
There is NO generic part to make this work.

That or make it yourself.
