Estate sales often produce some of the most horrific lamps you can imagine, and also some of the most interesting. I'm a big antiquer myself and spend a lot of time looking over some of the strangest lighting options known to man. Like the "legs" lamp in A Christmas Story these lamps can get pretty off the way. However, every so often you run across that beauty that you can't pass up.
Hold the lamp up against light. You will be able to see the effect the lamp is likely to lend to the room. At such times it is best to make sure that the lamp makes a pleasant effect and works to compliment the walls in your house. Having a symbiotic relation between the lamp, lights and walls, especially in terms of color is extremely important while selecting a lamp.
You can have a clear glass table lamp in the shape of an urn or perhaps a modern one that is shaped like a geometrical pattern such as a pyramid, for example. So many table lamps and we have not even gotten to colored glass yet!
When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
