    One of the simplest ways to identify an antique lamp is to look for markings that indicate the maker. Then, you can research the artisan or company that made the lamp using trusted online resources to see when they were active. Some antique lamps may have a date stamp on the shade or the bottom of the body of the lamp. Plugs can also provide a clue. Plugs on antique and vintage fixtures may feature exposed screws or prongs that are the same size. Prongs on newer lamps are usually two different sizes. Keep in mind that an antique lamp could have undergone a cord replacement, so what you see may not be an original. When in doubt, you can consult a certified appraiser or experienced antiques dealer for information about specific pieces. Shop a selection of antique lamps on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Determining the age of a rug often depends on the style of rug because different styles have evolved at their own rates and with their own characteristics. One thing you can look for is a date; some rugs weave the year into the border. Another thing to make note of is the color of the rug. Bright dyes and synthetic fibers weren’t available until the 1920s for rugs, so authentic antique rugs will have muted tones. Shop a collection of vetted antique rugs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
