Stained Glass Retro Lamps

Retro Stained lamps were first created in 1899 by Louis Comfort Tiffany. He came upon the idea of creating lamps with pieces of stained glass when he saw them as discarded pieces while a stained glass window was being made. The first stained lamp was made on a bronze stand and the pieces of stained glass were soldered together with the help of a copper foil. Since then, stained glass lamps, which came to be called Tiffany Lamps have become the rage in home decoration.

Retro stained glass lamps can be used with practically any décor and they never fail to add a touch of elegance to any room they are in. They add fantastic colors to the part of room they light and give out soft, subdued light for a touch of class. Even during the day, if the lamps are switched on, they make beautiful and colorful patterns on the walls or floor around them and add a little cheer to the entire room.

The first stained glass lamp was made by soldering pieces of stained glass on a copper frame. Today, they are made by fusing colored enamels to pieces of glass and firing them at a very high temperature of up to 1100 degrees Fahrenheit and are just as beautiful. Thousands of different colors can be used in making retro stained glass lamps and these days it is even possible to custom make retro stained glass lamps to designs of your choice. This allows you add a personal touch to your home décor.

There are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing a retro stained glass lamp. Firstly, all the glass pieces have to be perfectly attached and there should be no risk of them falling off. Secondly, the glass has to be transparent for light to shine through them. Finally, you need to ensure that the color on the glass pieces does not run.
