During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
There are also different techniques for making the antler lamps themselves. Some lamp makers use glue to hold the antlers together. Others may fasten them together with rawhide thong for a rustic Indian look. And some of the most attractive antler lamps may include a combination of being glued, drilled and screwed together, with the holes sealed for a natural look. Better quality lamps will almost always include rawhide lamp shades.
In Jackson Hole, WY the town's square is embellished with arches created from Elk antlers. It is certainly unique and you can create the same spirit with antler lamps. Small lamps are created from whitetail deer antlers while large light fixtures such as chandeliers may have tiers of elk antlers with rawhide lampshades. One of the most popular lamps is created with moose antlers, recognizable with their beautiful dark palms and dark rawhide lamp shades.
Those little touches are what can really make or break a room. When thinking about shopping for that replacement lamp shade, make sure you keep in mind the decor your room has at the moment. You certainly would not want to get a country lamp shade when your room is more techno or modern looking.
Under voltage is also a sign of poor connection or ground termination probably stemming from corrosion and bad ground points. Check the connections and apply non-conductive grease. Keep your plug in hanging lamp cool since too much heat can be detrimental to long-term functionality. LED or incondesant lamps should dissipate the heat produced for longer lifespan.
