I really wanted to find a cordless crystal table lamp that I could show you, but it turns out that there aren't very many battery powered table lamps available. So we will look at this BettyLou Cordless LED Lamp instead. This lamp is made of almost 100% glass and it will work in any contemporary setting. Since it is battery powered, one question you always have to ask is how long will it stay lit? Well, the answer is that this cordless light will give excellent lighting for over 7 hours.
But you will probably end up throwing these lamps away sooner or later. The material is brittle, hollow, fragile and it chips and breaks very easily. You will likely not be giving these lamps to your grand children, not even your children. This poly resin material reminds me of the chalk ware lamps from circa 1950. These lamps are rarely if ever found in one piece. They were cheap back then and they are usually worthless now.
Third, ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However, oddly-shaped or with protruding angles, some lamps' unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember, you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it, the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
So you have decided to purchase a lamp. There are numerous design questions to consider such as height, girth, color, style, function and of course price. But have you seriously considered searching exclusively for a vintage lamp ? Probably not. Our entire culture is so strongly influenced by advertising of mass produced products including lamps, that we are programmed to think only in terms of what has been presented by the mass merchants.
