The same with Tiffany lamps, Mica lamps were first introduced in early twentieth century. It had become one of the best selling table lamp styles at that period. Mica lamp is made from mica which is a group of minerals that separates easily and turns into very thin leaves. The shade of this lamp comes with different colors like green, black, brown and yellow. It gives a mystic look that is very beautiful to people's eyes when mica lamp is turned on. Every shade of these mica lamps is unique with a various mineral patterns and color tones.
For those who loved colored glass, Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it, then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds, lines, and bubbles that occur in the glass, which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
Despite the implication of their name, however, antique art deco lamps are not antiques, or more than a hundred years old, yet. They can though be considered vintage, which means that they are older than fifty years, since the earliest antique lamps came out in the 1920s. However, they are already being sought out by antique collectors, mainly due to the thought that in a few years time they will already become antiques, thus boosting their value and potential profits made from reselling.
