Several styles of Victorian lamps were used in the Victorian home. During the late 1890s, Banquet Lamps were very fashionable for the dining table, as they not only gave a beautiful light at dinner or supper, but were a rich and elegant ornament or centerpiece for the table during the day. Small table lamps with linen umbrella shades were recommended to college students, schoolrooms, professors, and all who occupied their sleeping apartments more or less before retiring.
