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.
Finally, consider how the table lamp is made. The materials used to build it can imply its longevity and durability. Further, certain materials look differently in the light of a store than they may look in the room or office in which you place the lamp.
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.
LOW VOLTAGE HALOGEN LAMPS - Low voltage halogen lamps provide crisp white light, accurate beam control and high light output and are widely used commercially for display lighting and highlighting features. With the additional benefits of long life and energy efficiency, low voltage halogen also provides an excellent alternative to incandescent for accent lighting in residential applications.
