Tiffany lamps are a classic. Everybody wants to own it but a very few can really afford to do so. The exclusivity of the lamps adds to its appeal. The very face that not every other person can buy it makes Tiffany lamp owners a cut above the rest. The status value and awe that the lamp brings makes it an instant hit and favorite amongst most upper middle class and higher class house wives. Tiffany lamps can add the right amount of glamour and class to an otherwise plainly set up room. The elegance they bring is unparalleled.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
Imagine, if you will, a lamp that constructed of geometric squares made of glass positioned in an interesting geometric pattern allowing you to light either one or all three squares? The modernistic sculpture you see before you is a glass table lamp. There are also iron urn type of lights that have glass inset in them so that again, it can be used as a glass table lamp with a lit inside, or it also can be used as a gently lit a night light. In that case, you may use any kind of shade with it that fits your general decor.
Traditional lamps are reproductions or reinterpretations of lamps that express a strong historical perspective from the pre-industrial designs of Europe or Asia usually. These lamps often provide elaborate ornamentation that require highly skilled artisans and craftsmen. For example, the lamp may have a beautiful, intricate gold filigree design or the lampshade may have a bell shape with a double edged scallop design - and maybe some tassels or fringe.
