You may also find that you want to purchase modern lamps that replicate older designs. This may include lamps that mimic the Victorian age, or ones that were commonly used out west. Some people also find lamps that mimic everyday objects interesting. For example, you may want a special lamp that features a train engine, or even a caboose. No matter which modern lamps you choose to buy, you can have peace of mind knowing that they will feature electric sockets instead of making use of oil or kerosene.
The job of a lampshade is to complement the lamp. Rounder lamps require rounded shapes, such as drum, oval, empire, coolie, and bell. For squarer bases, shades need to be more angular, such as square, rectangular, hexagon, and pagoda.
Antique Lamps can be found with various antique dealers and are sold in either 'restored' or 'as found' condition. The lamps are restored by polishing, burnishing or replacing some parts and not by interfering with their vintage value. Catalogs of the antique lamps in stores can be found online with the complete description and historical significance. Prices depend on the vintage value and rarity of the design and art- work on the lamp.
