WHERE DID STEAMPUNK LAMPS COME FROM? BEFORE THE INVENTION OF THE ELECTRIC LIGHT BULB, STEAM AND NATURAL GAS WERE KING! STEAM WAS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF POWER THAT RAN THE MACHINERY OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION AND NATURAL GAS LIT HOMES AND BUSINESSES. ONCE THE ELECTRIC LIGHT BULB CAME TO BE AND THE GENERATION OF ELECTRICITY BECAME COMMON PLACE, THE NEED FOR LIGHTING DEVICES OF ALL TYPES BECAME APPARENT, HOWEVER THE LACK OF PREMADE LAMP PARTS BECAME A MAJOR ISSUE BECAUSE THERE WERE NO FORMAL LAMP PARTS MANUFACTURING COMPANIES AT THE TIME. WHEN THE LACK OF THE LAMP PARTS DOOR OPENED, IN STEPPED THE INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE OF THAT TIME. WHAT THEY WERE ABLE TO DO WAS TO TAKE ALREADY EXISTING STEAM AND GAS PIPES AND CONVERT THEM TO ACCOMMODATE ELECTRICITY. IN WENT LIGHT BULBS, GAS PIPES, STEAM PIPES, WIRE, SWITCHES AND SOME CREATIVE THINKING AND OUT CAME STEAMPUNK LAMPS. STEAMPUNK ICONOGRAPH IS 17″HIGH 81/2″LONG MADE IN NEW JERSEY OF ALL U.
