Lamps are back in style, perhaps because the new light bulbs give off unflattering light or perhaps because decorators have discovered that antique lamps are interesting additions to a modern room. So we are not surprised that Lamp is one of the Top 20 searches (No. 20). Auctions, shows, and shops are selling lamps in many styles: 19th-century Gone-with-the-Wind examples, early 20th-century cameo glass, 1930s art pottery vases made into lamps, and late 20th-century modern lamps in unfamiliar shapes and sizes. And bargains can be found at local house sales and flea markets. This lamp was designed by Walter Von Nessen (1889–1943), an industrial designer at the forefront of modern lamp design. It's brushed aluminum with a mica shade, 21-inches high, and sold for $2,820 at a Cowan auction.
