More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers’ own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
When I look up at a chandelier lamp I begin to wonder a lot of things. More inquisitive than the regular Joe, I look at things and assess them the same way I do with people I meet. And I love hearing accounts of people’s lives and how things came to be. Oh, what stories the people who made them can tell us. There is no better example than a chandelier lamp. Under it a chandelier lamp looks so unreachable. A thing of beauty surrounded by a mist of mystery is so high above the ceiling that there is no other choice but to just look at it and admire it from below. The beauty of a chandelier lamp make you want to touch it hoping to hold the light in the palm of your hand. Oh, if only you could.
