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.
The flowered domes include many different colors in the shade. The domes are rounded, draping domes, unlike the typical cone shape of a typical shade. Designs include the Dragonfly, Daffodil, Peony, Bamboo, Oriental poppy, Apple Blossom, Poinsettia and so many more. Similar to the flowered domes, the flowered cone lamps were symmetrical with the floral designs and were a bit more like a typical cone-shaped shade. Tiffany’s use of color, design, and shapes set his flowered cones far apart from any typical shade of the day. The Dragonfly, Oriental poppy, and the Peony designs were also made using the cone design. The Lily Pad, Grape, Water Lily and Arrowroot were exclusively made in the cone design.
