Antique lamps come in a huge variety of colors, designs, and price. The older lamps from famous art categories are highly decorative and expensive. A nouveau Tiffany lamp can be for 2 million dollars. This is an extraordinarily high price. But this is not the only lamp from the antique collections that you can put your hand on for buying. There are many other types of lamps from vintage era that have the aura of older times and reflect history.

Searching for an antique lamp for your bedroom or living room is more difficult than searching for a modern trendy lamp.
