Lustres and lamps Portfolio

Early lamps which were available in the 19th century featured a container with kerosene in,  which wick or mantle was dipped in that burned, the container had glass chimney or a globe atop, which protected the flame from a draft. However with the invention of the electric bulb, the use of lamps and lustres moved from practical to decorative. Today lamps can be used for a whole variety of purposes and can be placed on tables or the floor and many now use fabric, card or still glass shades.
