You must be especially careful while buying your lamp. This is because the lamp I extremely expensive and you may not be able to buy another one. At such times it is best to be sure of what you are buying rather than regretting afterward.
Transitional lamps are a cross between traditional and a contemporary lamps. For example, something about a particular lamp reminds you of a Louis XIV style - but it definitely does not have all the qualities required to be a Louis XIV. It may have the shape of a Louis XIV or some other classical style - but the ornamentation and embellishment are not there. A transitional lamp may be inspired by a traditional lamp, but the design and detailing has been simplified. However, if it highly abstracted or pushed to the extreme - it is likely a Modern lamp design!
The utter simplicity of clear glass will often lend itself to having a myriad of colors available to pair up the lamp with brightly colored shades, for instance, allowing you to match just about any color scheme you may desire. On the other hand, glass comes in a rainbow of colors, thus you may opt for a colored glass lamp with a simpler shade.
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.
