Antique is defined as meaning “over 100 years of age”. Our antique French lamps certainly meet this requirement, with lamps from the mid 18th century to the early 20th.
French faience, lamps by Edmé Samson of Paris, Limoges, Sèvres and Paris porcelain lamps are included in our collection. We also offer antique French accent lamps and stunning examples of French Greek revival.
Vintage refers to something from an earlier generation. Our vintage collection includes French lamps produced throughout the 20th century including lamps from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods.
France has a reputation for elegance and style and our French lamp collection certainly confirms this. Bound in centuries of history, whether your style is pretty, chic, impressive or understated, you’ll find the ideal French lamp for your interior.
All of our French lamps, including pieces in both the vintage and antique collections, are shipped to the US and UK and are wired to US and UK specifications.
Lamp shades, if required, can be ordered if desired with the purchased French lamp.
With a collection of sophisticated French lamps, we are proud to be able to ship both our antique and vintage collections worldwide through strict precautions to ensure the lamp stays in perfect condition. All lamps ordered are carefully double boxed, shipped and delivered via Australia Post.

Porcelain and pottery have always been a widely used medium for the production of table lamps. The beginning of porcelain in France was one of the earliest in Europe with the first attempt made at Rouen in Normandy in 1673. Porcelain soon became a craze with everyone wanting it, leading to vast amounts being imported from China.
As we enter the beginnings of stylish interior lighting, fuel lamps became le mode moderne. With electricity being invented, table lamps took on a new direction. Our exclusive collection of French lamps includes examples of French faience, Opaline glass and porcelain from the 18th century to the mid 20th.
