Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I clean crystal
A: Warm water with a little dish detergent. Wash crystals individually and then dry with a lint free cloth or paper towel. I do not recommend sparying the whole fixture and letting it "drip dry". I find that it rusts many of the metal parts.

Q: How do I care for a metal lamp
A: Clean with water or a mild detergent. Rinse and dry. Then put on a coat or two of "Johnson's Paste Wax" and buff. Doing this every three years will keep the lacqur on your lamp in good shape and retard the dust from pitting the lacquer.

Q: Why do bulbs burn out so quickly
A: Usually it is because the bulb is burning base up or base sideways instead of base down.

Q: How do I shop for a shade
A: Always take your lamp with you. Each lamp is able to take 2 to 3 different sizes as well as different styles. You wouldn't shop for shoes without your feet!
