Shopping for antique lighting

I was in Artisan Lamp Co in my neighborhod the other day checking out the 'new' inventory.  I say 'new' because the store carries refurbished vintage and antique light fixtures. You may remember my blog post on it from last year HERE.  Since then I've found a few items for my own new place as well as for some projects.
I always love the very architectural empire style chandliers and they must be popular because they never last long in the store!
This gilded chanelier is beautiful and I loved that it has LOTS of lightbulbs. I have to say I love the chandelier I chose for my dining room from Artisan but I wish it gave off more light.
 If crystal is your thing, how about real rock crystal? Very elegant.
 I have a soft spot for lamps, you can never have too many. I loved this little art nouveau lady and the favrille glass one to the right..
 The crackle finish on this vase turned lamp was beautiful.
 A pair of marble lamps with ormolu might be more your thing? Very handsome if a tad somber.
I've love this French painted lamp and am not sure why it has not sold in a few months; waiting to come home with me perhaps?
 This unusual peacock lamp is really fun! Great for an entry hall.
They always carry an array of sconces as well in the back of the store. These victorian crystal ones would look very stately flanking a fireplace.
 These enormous French gilded sconces are so elegant.
And for the equestrian in your life, how about a pair of horse sconces?  I always think light fixtures are the jewelry in a room, so bling out your space!
