General Lamp / January 15, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd
The story above exemplifies only one reason why you should consider an antique lamp. There are many more reasons to purchase an antique lamp not the least of which is quality and craftsmanship. The overwhelming majority of lamps produced today are made of resin (poly) of one sort or another. This material is wonderful in the way it can be molded and painted plus it is cheap to produce.
Both 40 and 60-watt T10 bulbs provide sufficient light to clearly read your music, so choosing between them is more a matter of personal preference as to how bright you would like the lamp to be. Other balance arm lamps use fluorescent bulbs which throw more of a white warm light, are more energy efficient and last longer than incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs typically require about one quarter of the energy than incandescent bulbs do and also produce 75% less heat. Many balance arm lamps use a 13w PL fluorescent bulb, which is equivalent to 55 watts of incandescent light.
