More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron brass steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble onyx glass and stone. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers` own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years.
