Bright Colored Floor Lamps - First, let's define antique floor lamp. Of course, a floor lamp usually rests upon the floor as opposed to resting on the wall a table or the ceiling. Something is meant by the typical definition of an antique from a bygone age. "Age" is general perceived and is understood to be a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly with this basic definition.
More and more people are learning to understand styling and the quality of antique floor lamps literally and notably as most of the ones being produced today are modeled plastic made to be thrown away. All their lamps were made by floor lamp makers in the turn of the century from heavy metals such as cast iron, steel brass and cast zinc sometimes blended with marble, onyx, glass and stone. These antique floor lamps are consistently restored by our lamp shop for resale as well as for our customers' own use.
Function, attractiveness, and high quality were powerful influences on the manufacturers of antique floor lamps. A lot of people are aware of their outstanding quality and attractiveness but entirely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. You will find too many examples to list here but I'll mention a few the ones that are more significant.
A cloth or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light down for reading. One arm light could provide a simple night light or at its brightest setting, it might light up a complete room. It was designed and made and there's no brighter lamp or even more versatile lamp available anyplace today nearly 100 years ago!
