The Drawing Room Antiques in Newport, RI presents dozens of examples currently in inventory with descriptions including materials, sizes, and prices. This book can also be used as a reference book for beginning collectors of 19th century table lamps. Historic interiors commonly use period lighting to enhance the authentic style being created. Rare examples are often viewed in historic homes across America starting with the White House in Washington. Room settings in museums depicting 19th century decorating styles feature period table lamps because they were critical to families to provide light for evening activities.
