One of the more attractive types of old style table lamps that you can find is the mica table lamp, a lamp that has an amber colored lamp shade. These types of lamps throw a warm glow of illumination across the room thanks to the caramel-colored lampshade that diffuses the light.
These lamps are old-style lamps often made with a black iron frame to offset the color of the mica that dominates. The more common components for a mica table lamp is solid copper including copper rivets. The color of copper complements the color of the mica shades beautifully. These types of lamps were brought to prominence by Dirk Van Erp in the early 1900s.
The mica lamp shade fits perfectly with a dark or brushed metal lamp base giving it the classical antique appearance. Below are some examples of the beauty that can be captured in a mica table lamp.
