strange lamp wattage

I have a desk lamp that came with a 13w CFL bulb in it. It has big stickers saying not to use bulbs over 13w. But the lamp shade is metal, the bulb socket (Edison) is ceramic, and you can plainly see that the wires going to the socket have braided insulation on them.

Can anyone think of a reason why this lamp should have such a low wattage warning on it?
