However, don't expect it to have all the qualities of a real antique lamp but then it doesn't boast to have them either. It's just a fancy handcrafted lamp in a reasonable price. This glass table lamp can hold two bulbs at a time and they can be lit together as well as one at a time, which is good in you want to save energy or need less light at times. Overall, it's a nice lamp at a fair price.
The bridge lamp was made specifically for the purpose of being able to direct light EXACTLY where it is supposed to go and not necessarily to light an entire room. Back when these lamps were created, the homes of many of the people were built to have very high ceilings which caused a great light in the room from the ceiling light, but the light was distributed throughout the whole room which created shadows below it. If you were to sit in a chair to read or sit at a desk in order to do some work, the shadow of the person or anything else near the subject, would make the light very dim and not at all bright enough to help with what task was being performed.
The light of the bridge lamp could be put by a chair or a desk and positioned so that the light would aim directly on the actual work or book that was being used. It was a very popular lamp for this purpose but also the antique bridge lamp became a favorite lamp to decorate the shade. With the shade hanging down, you were able to have a lot more freedom when it came to decorating.
