you light up my life

Vintage lamps are a great way to bring a little kitsch to a nursery or child's room. From well-loved nursery rhyme characters to friendly animals, these lamps have brought a smile to many kids as well as adults throughout the years.

Vintage baby lamps were often made of painted wood, plaster, or ceramic. Today, many of these old lamps have peeling paint or chips which only add to their charm. In addition, most old shades are in poor condition, but adding a new one is an easy fix.

As with any vintage children's item, extra care should be taken to make sure it doesn't pose any hazards. Make sure there are no small parts which could cause a choking hazard, place lamps out of reach of curious hands, and always have any vintage lighting rewired to avoid shocks or burns. With these suggestions in mind, your vintage lamp will be ready for new generations to enjoy. Check out our website at to see which styles we currently have in stock.
