It is an excellent compendium of art deco light fixtures and, although the prices stated are on the high side, gives us a good idea of rarity and value. Although this book is the best resource of its kind, I do have two minor whines.

I bought this book primarily because I own the the lamp on the cover, which is displayed side by side of the book and lamp in my home.Herb and his partner own a wonderful store in lovely New Hope,PA, which is rich in culture and antiques.This reviewer is fortunate to live only an hour away. I bought the lamp as shown on the cover in the next town over in Lambertville , NJ and the dealer thought it was a converted oil lamp and sold it to me for $90. Interesting enough was that the couple that wrote the book on Art Deco Lighting has a shop only 5 minutes away. I have quite a few Art Deco Lamps in my collection (OCD of course) and found this book to be a very valuable asset to me as a collector. It does fall short on in depth details of treasures listed in the book , but I love it and it serves very well as a reference book. As collector's, we need as much info we can get and most of us realize that it doesn't usually come from one source. It's all part of the trill of the hunt for collectibles.

Dream
This book should have been titled "Light fixtures from the first half of the 20th century" or something to that effect. It had pieces from as early as 1904 and as recent as (ambiguously) the 1940s (I suspect some were late 40s). Some of the pieces were of the right era (like the 1930s porcelain table lamps on p.66) but not really art deco in style.

More than half a dozen of the pieces had replaced shades. It is to be expected that some shades would get lost or broken over the course of 70-85 years. In some cases the replacement shade suited the piece (specifically the glass torchiere shades). The fabric shades that look like they're from Macy's or Target, IMO, should have been left out of the picture. The etched cranberry glass shades on the sconces on p. 100 should have been removed for the picture because they weren't art deco and they obscured the upper portion of the pieces. I would have rather seen more of the intricate design detail than the mismatched shades.

The picture quality was very good, and I understand they were limited to pieces they've had in their (impressive) collection. I thought the value estimates seemed a bit high, but maybe I'm thinking auction estimates and they're thinking insurance values. While it didn't exactly live up to my expectations, I wouldn't call it a total waste of money either.

Super P
I can never get enough of this deco stuff. Another great book that makes a collector drool over the different lamps that were made during that era. Unfortunately, most of the lamps are out of the price range of your average collectors. However, if one keeps an eye out on auction websites, you might get a lucky find. For a serious collector or one who dabbles now and then into the deco world, this book is a great find.

The book has beautiful pictures but does not cover enough of the different deco types of lamps. Not very helpful for me.

as expected

I have a collection of over 200 art deco/nouveau figural lamps. Since I owned one of the the lamps shown on the book cover I bought the book... It was disapointing that the book is mainly about utilitarian light fixtures rather than the type of figural decorative lamps shown on the cover..

Millman's book presents a wide variety of Art Deco lamps, sconces and chandeliers. The photography is superb and beautifully highlights these grand fixtures of a time gone by. While some may only be interested in the Frankarts & Nuarts, this book offers a wide variety of lighting that may still be accessible to those priced out of that extreme high end market. As a diverse collector myself, I can truly appreciate the vast range of lighting, American & European, illustrated in this book and recommend it highly to all interested in the Art Deco era.
