About Antique Oil Lamp
Your household decor ranges from the contemporary to the antique, and candles just are not your thing. If you want decorative lighting solutions, buying an antique oil lamp or two would continue the Old World-look you desire while adding some candle-like light to the home when you are in the mood for it. Oil lamps come in many different styles depending on what country it comes from and when artisans created it. If you prefer a more luxurious style with delicate blown or painted glass, consider the antique Victorian oil lamp. These lamps feature intricate metal work and gold or copper accents. Iron and brass are also popular metals used in Victorian oil lamps. If you prefer more of a rugged oil lamp, an antique railroad oil lamp is an option to consider. These lamps are historical since workers used them on the railroads to direct trains and communicate. These oil lamps feature reflectors, and the ones that lit the inside of the trains connected to the wall with brackets. On eBay, you can find an antique oil lamp to suit your needs from the vast selection available.
