Most antique desk lamps have been updated with modern wiring, so you can use a regular lightbulb. However, some lamps are truly antique and need oil or a candle for light. Below is a list of some of the most common types of antique lamps you’ll come across.

Candlestick Lamp

Candlestick lamps are a traditional style of table lamp that stands straight and tall, like a candlestick. In the past, candlestick lamps used candles, but after the 20th century, they started using electrical wiring and light bulbs. Candlestick lamps have a simple yet sophisticated design, with straight lines and polished materials.

Bouillotte Lamp

Bouillotte lamps are an old French table lamp design with a rounded base and two to four candle holders. Similar to candelabras, bouillotte lamps featured a metal or lacquer lamp shade over the top to reflect light into the room. Modern bouillotte lamps have mechanisms that let you lower the individual holders to change candles or bulbs.

Tiffany Lamp

Tiffany lamps have glass coverings with smaller stained glass pieces. These colorful lamps came about in the 1900s and were extremely popular in the United States. Most Tiffany lamps use electricity and can still fetch a high price.

Art Deco Lamps

Bold colors and sharp lines characterized the style in the 40s and 50s. Art Deco lamps borrow from this iconic style, creating an elegant, dramatic, and slightly futuristic look. In addition, art Deco lamps often use unconventional shapes and colors, which can create a unique contrast with your home’s decorative style.

Student Lamps

Student lamps have a swiveling candle holder that students used to use for reading at night. Old student lamps had a kerosene reservoir, but most antiques now have electrical wiring for light bulbs.

Materials for Antique Lamps

Antique desk lamps feature several materials, depending on the year of their creation. The most common materials on our antique lamps include: Brass, Bronze, Ceramic, Wood, Alabaster, Iron, Marble and Silver.

Many collectors prefer antique lamps with gilded precious metals as these can resist corrosion. More contemporary lamps use a wider range of materials, ranging from clay to ceramics.
