Antique Lamps can be found with various antique dealers and are sold in either 'restored' or 'as found' condition. The lamps are restored by polishing, burnishing or replacing some parts and not by interfering with their vintage value. Catalogs of the antique lamps in stores can be found online with the complete description and historical significance. Prices depend on the vintage value and rarity of the design and art- work on the lamp.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn't going to get jostled in the near future, then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. 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.
When using the lamps remember that you are dealing with electricity; therefore, you should exercise caution. To protect the lampshade from getting burnt ensure that the lampshade is a good distance from the light bulb. Also, ensure that the switch isn't in contact with the bulb. The shape of the lamp is of great importance. For a great look ensure that the shape compliments the look of your house.
