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.
There are mission inspired lamps that feature amber glass throughout the lamp, even the shade is made of amber glass, and often there is a light bulb within the base itself that allows for the entire lamp to be lit with a warm tan colored glow both within and without. The base as mentioned can be lit, thus often can be used as a nightlight.
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.
