There are a few precautions when choosing an antique fixture. Very important: have the wiring checked by a professional. This is not a complicated or expensive task. Most antique lamps can be made as safe as new ones. Another thing to look for when checking for safety is the metal used in the lamp. Early lamps were sometimes made by soldering together thin sheets of brass or other metal. Solder areas wear. Make sure that if there are any areas that look weak, you have them strengthened by a lighting professional.

Some prefer new lighting in their homes, but many prefer the warm glow offered by antique lighting. Antique lighting is defined as lighting made prior to the 1950s. Why go with antique? If you are decorating in a certain period style, why use a new reproduction, when the real deal is available? More often than not, antique lights are less expensive than new. Antique lights offer precision in matching lighting with period décor, and they have the richness of the past reflected in them. If you decide to have authentic period lighting in your home, you can visit museums, historic homes and read about lighting in the past. Antique shops and shows offer a myriad of lights in a myriad of styles. Visit and you can talk to an expert, like the Antiques Market Place’s Ron Kroohn, who can show you which fixtures are appropriate to which era, and can give you good advice on use and safety issues.

Our last category is American Vintage, which speaks of transitional lighting that had no distinct period characteristics, but could fit into many different eras and styles.
