I've seen a few on auction sites that had a white spacer. Which often shrank with age leaving an unsightly gap. Might be why yours is missing.

You can do a quick and easy replacement with a suitably sized piece of thick white plastic squished in place, lightly traced, removed and trimmed to fit. Detergent bottles are made of nice thick plastic and if you like Surf you make a snazzy orange one.

IF it was me I think I would make on out of delrin... Tap plastics or any plastics supply should have what you need.
Delrin is good stuff.
