Back in the day, different types of lamps were a practical household necessity. In 1910 and through to the 1940s, a very popular lamp that was very popular was the antique "bridge" lamp. This lamp is a floor lamp that is unique with its arm that sticks out from the top of the body and base. This arm is referred to as the "bridge" of the lamp. The shade is then attached at the end of the bridge over the light bulb.
In any case these lamps are desired the world over for their beautiful handcrafted designs and attention to detail. To get a measure of how desirable they are, two lamps sold at auction in 1998 for almost $2 million each!
It is advised that you choose a lamp of appropriate size. For instance, in a narrow table a small-sized lamp would look best. On the other hand, a bulky table will need to have a larger-sized lamp. It can also help if you take the necessary measurements which can ensure that the height of the lamp will be perfect for the area you are going to place it. Also ensure that the bottom of the shade should be even with your cheekbone when you are sitting on a chair. The light should also fall on the page you are reading.
