About this title:


Many basic questions confronting antique lamp buyers, from "Where do I look for a manufacturer's signature?" to "How do I distinguish reproductions from originals?" are answered here. Using color photographs and catalogue illustrations, a wealth of information is presented including buying or selling old lighting, restoration issues like rewiring, practical uses for fixtures originally made for gas or oil, and restoring and protecting metal finishes.

About the Author: Nadja Maril is a historic lighting consultant from Annapolis, Maryland who also is the author of American Lighting 1840-1940, also available from Schiffer Publishing.
