Antique lamps include candle lamps, gas chandeliers, solar, astral, sconces, sinumbra oil lamps, kerosene lamps, piano lamps, banquet lamps and even electric lamps. These lamps also include the Victorian and American designed art-glass lamps and the various lighting devices. Antique lamps are bought for their designs and patterns. People collect antique lamps to enrich their collection. Some of these lamps are even sold to museums, depending on their historical value and exquisite periodic designs. They appeal to art collectors, either for their private collections or contribution to museums.
A variety of contemporary lamps are found online, where all the types of lamps and lighting fixtures are displayed. A detailed description including their pricing, material, finish, height and lamping instructions of bulb types and switch operation also accompany the image of the individual products. A unique code number serves as their identity, using which buyers can place online orders or enquire about the product. Prices may vary depending on the make and model of the lamps. Shipping charges are usually added to these price rates although some stores might charge additional shipping fees. However, it is important to compare and check the prices before buying from any of these sites. Online catalogs offered by most of the shopping websites can be very helpful in comparing the products and their price ranges. Buyers can also avail of the discount rates offered by the online stores from time to time.
As I got older my parents prospered and suddenly lamps began appearing in our lounge room. I have vivid memories of a bright orange colored lamp shade on a wooden lamp stand that took pride of place in our lounge for many years. However items like a desk lamp, a bedside lamp or a glass lamp shade never really became a big part of our home furnishings. Mum would shop for many things but exotic lighting with brightly colored lamp shades rarely made it onto her shopping list.
