Montgomery Floor Lamp With Night Light - First, let's define vintage floor lamp. Needless to say, a floor lamp generally rests upon the ground compared to resting on the wall a table or the ceiling. The overall definition of an antique means something from a bygone era. This places the term outside the legal arena and into common use.
Increasingly more individuals are learning how to understand the quality and styling of classic floor lamps literally and particularly as most of the ones being produced now are modeled plastic made to be thrown away. Most 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 combined with glass, onyx, marble and rock. These vintage floor lamps are often restored by our lamp store for resale together with for our customers' own use.
Attractiveness high quality, and function were strong influences on the manufacturers of classic floor lamps. Several people are conscious of their outstanding quality and attractiveness but entirely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical features. You'll find far too many examples to list here but I'll mention a few the more significant ones.
The central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which carries a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light up to bounce off the ceiling, as if this were not enough. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shadiness) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. An easy night light, a single arm light could provide or at its brightest setting, it might light a whole room up. It was designed and made and there's no versatile or brighter lamp lamp accessible anyplace now nearly 100 years ago!
