Word of the Week: Gone with the Wind Lamps

Gone with the wind lamps are beautiful pieces of work. By definition, they are lamps with decorated round globes and matching bases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These lamps are not only appealing because of their beauty, but because of their age. This style was developed in the Victorian era – the late 1800’s. If you’ve got an original lamp from this time period, it can be worth a lot of money! Even some of the reproduction ones are incredible and will fetch a good amount.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These lamps were originally filled with oil, but many people have since converted them into electric table lamps. While an original untouched lamp will get you a lot more, any of these choices will bring you a nice chunk of change.
