Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Art Lamps information webpage:
âUntil the introduction of the electric light bulb in the 1880s, all indoor lighting was provided by oil or wax fed lamps. Oil lamps have bee around since man first learned to work and shape metal. Since wood was affected by oil and could easily catch fire, and hewing a map out of stone was a time consuming process, metal lamps were the best option. Metal lamps soon progressed from merely a functional item to works of art. Intricate designs and scrolling allowed them to become decorative items that added to the appeal of a house. Ancient archeological sites are littered with intricately designed metal lamps. The advent of glass that ensconced the flame but allowed the light to pass allowed the metal artist even greater flexibility in creating what we call today metal art lamps.
There are two main types of art metal lamps. The first is the piece of metal sculpture which has a light fitting as an integral part of it. These are usually hand crafted either by individual artists or companies using the services of artists under contract to them. These are usually stand alone sculptures, and can be of any size, form the smallest table piece to a large free standing one.â
