When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
Lamps have been around for thousands of years. From rudimentary copper bowls that use simple wicker sticks and oil to the wide range of contemporary light sources, floor lamps have undergone different stages of technical and aesthetic evolution. Today's floor lamps extend beyond just lightening up homes and business establishments. Contemporary floor lamps now assume a functional role in providing accent, ambience, or character to a particular room or space. This role makes floor lamps one of the most popular fixtures among interior designers, landscape artists, homeowners and building administrators.
The purpose of lighting the house must be clearly known. Make sure you identify clearly the needs of the lamp because in an example of one for reading you need to get the correct lamp for reading. The brightness and dullness of it matters a lot depending on the purpose that the lamp is intended to meet.
