Antique Style Lamps - Quite commonly the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920’s. That couldn’t be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again.

Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn’t leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended).

Also the ratio of the lamp’s size to the furnishing’s size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn’t detract from the lamp itself.

Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds lines and bubbles that occur in the glass which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
