Large Arc Floor Lamp - First, let us define antique floor lamp. Of course, a floor lamp generally rests upon the floor compared to resting on the wall a table or the ceiling. The general definition of an antique means something from a bygone age. This sets the period outside the legal arena and into common use. "era" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly with this basic definition.
A growing number of individuals are learning to understand the quality and styling of antique floor lamps particularly as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers in the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals for example cast iron, cast, steel and brass zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and rock. Our lamp store frequently restores these antique floor lamps for resale in addition to for our customers' own use.
