Purelite Deluxe Floor Standing Magnifying Lamp - First, let us define classic floor lamp. Obviously, a floor lamp usually rests upon the ground as opposed to resting on the ceiling, the wall or a table. Something is meant by the general definition of an antique from a bygone era. "Age" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly for this particular general definition.
An increasing number of people are learning how to understand styling and the quality of classic floor lamps literally and notably as most of the ones being created today 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 like cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with onyx, marble, glass and rock. Our lamp shop frequently restores these classic floor lamps for resale in addition to for our customers' own use.
High quality, beauty, and function were powerful influences on the manufacturers of antique floor lamps. A lot of people are conscious of their outstanding quality and beauty but totally surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. You will find far too many examples but I will mention a couple of the more important ones.
As though this weren't enough, the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which carries a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce off the ceiling. A cloth or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shadiness) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A simple night light, just one arm light can offer or at its brightest setting, it could light a whole room up. It had been designed and made and there is no versatile or brighter lamp lamp accessible anywhere today nearly 100 years ago!
