ANTIQUE SILVER LAMPS

Derived from the Greek word lampas, meaning torch, lamps have been used since around 70,000 BC, when a shell or hollow rock was filled with moss soaked in animal fat and ignited. Nowadays we tend to refer to lamps as any light giving source that is not used with candles (although student lamps and travelling lamps do use candles, and are included here), and instead use gas or electricity to provide light. Antique silver examples are rare and quite desirable.
