Antique porcelain lamps can be oil lamps or electric lamps, simply depending on when they were made and for what market. Some of these antique lamps are oil burning lamps. The most commonly recognized antique oil lamps are built with a large globe on the bottom and a smaller globe on top. Most of these are very decorative, with both globes painted, usually with floral designs. Electric antique porcelain lamps are typically of a table lamp style, but are still well known for having painted designs and patterns on one or both globes. There is a wide and varied assortment of antique lamps that can be purchased from ‘Net sites, antique stores, or even (sometimes) at yard or garage sales. These lamps may be oil or electric, plain or fancy, but are almost always high quality, as well as a lovely addition to a room or house.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp‘s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient), reading, or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room, a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However, if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room, it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general, rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
