Turkish lamp is perhaps one of the oldest forms of lighting still in use in Turkey. To follow the historical trace in this country, let us go back in time… The first traces of illumination in the Middle Ages are seen in wall murals depicting the different aspects of life. Wall murals in ancient times would not be complete without a light or illumination feature in them.
In the murals, the illumination was either from a pendant lamp mounted on a wall or from an eye-catching candle, which was used to give that extra special sparkle and shine to the subject being depicted. From this point in history, we can safely say that the modern usage of the lamp and its accompanying illumination was born.
The popularity of lighting has grown steadily over the years and now a wide variety of types of lamps have been introduced into the market, each with its own characteristic features.
The best-known Turkish lamps today are made of brass, cast iron, and bronze. Bronze was originally used as the material of choice due to its beautiful color, the fact that it is rustic-looking and durable and it also has a rich history to it. However, as the years passed, cast iron became the most widely used and well-loved type of lamp. It’s a popular choice because of its ability to withstand the rigors of time and still look elegant and stylish. Bronze lamps however are the oldest type of Turkish lamp and they are still very much in demand today.
These days, a number of companies have tried to duplicate the design and the appearance of these classic lamps. For the ones who want the originality of the originals but also the affordability of these replicas, one can choose the wrought iron lamps.
