During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
Shade frames can usually be recovered or new ones purchased. An antique frame is stripped, covered with rust-retardant and recovered. Over the years, a large variety of styles were designed. Interesting, all the frames have names. Since flowers played such an important role in the Victorian decorating scheme, many have names such as Tulip and Daffodil.
How To Repair And Sustain A Plug In Hanging Lamp: A plug in hanging lamp provides you with the advantage of mobility since you can easily install it from one area to another depending on the function and needs of the room. It also makes the item more vulnerable to damage and deterioration from frequent use. You have to learn the methods of repairing the plug in hanging lamp and keeping it good as new for many years.
If the corrosion is only minor or just starting, you may scrub it off using fine sand paper. Dust out the lens tube and reassemble the lens barrel. You may consider disassembling then reassembling the unit every quarter to ensure that all parts of your plug in hanging lamp are in good condition and working properly.
Another important thing that will determine how good or bad your lamp looks is the kind of bulb you use in your floor lamp. While the brightness or dimness of the bulb should be based on the amount of area that you want your floor lamp to light and the purpose for which you need the light, it is important to note that the bulb should be dim enough for the lamp not to look garish or too bright for the eyes.
