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!
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.
Originally, the lamp got its name because of bankers who used to work for long hours under its light. Now, it is used for other purposes as well but it is still called as bankers lamp. Now if you want to purchase one for your home or your office, you can choose one depending upon your interiors and usage.
