Antique lamps include candle lamps, gas chandeliers, solar, astral, sconces, sinumbra oil lamps, kerosene lamps, piano lamps, banquet lamps and even electric lamps. These lamps also include the Victorian and American designed art-glass lamps and the various lighting devices. Antique lamps are bought for their designs and patterns. People collect antique lamps to enrich their collection. Some of these lamps are even sold to museums, depending on their historical value and exquisite periodic designs. They appeal to art collectors, either for their private collections or contribution to museums.
Conical, cylindrical and other forms on floor-, desk-, or table top-mounted along with suspended lamp designs tend to be the most common lamp globes and therefore are made in a wide array of materials. There are many different types of lampshades that you will see times that you will feel truly overwhelmed with the prospect of actually choosing a table lampshade, a floor, or a ceiling one. You can even generate lamp shades out of any useful material, like nut shells, paper that you can manually make, stained glass, or metal ribbon and form it right into a extremely practical lamp shade with shapes like a bell, curl, or even a drum. However, if you don't have the luxury of the time, try considering the following information and choose wisely for your own.
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.
