While it’s rare to find original Tiffany Table Lamps, those that do exist are very valuable. Original works have sold for over 8 million dollars in public sales. The beauty and handcrafted artistry is not the only thing that makes original Tiffany Table Lamps so valuable, though. Their limited number adds to the mystique, too. Because only he and a few other artists made his designs, the numbers were much fewer than anything mass-produced. And because they did not keep track of how many lamps were made from each individual design, each new discovery could be a unique lamp or one of only a few made from one pattern.
As these ornaments are a bit expensive, taking care of them the right way is essential. In the case of tiffany style table lamps made of jadestone, use furniture oil made out of lemon oil. On the other hand, lamps made of fabric can be easily cleaned through the use of feather duster. Remember to clean it carefully because you will be pushing the dust more into the fabric if you clean it with a heavy hand. If the dust particles do not wear off right away, you should clean it with a dry rug.
Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in New York, designing stained glass for an interior design firm. The leftover pieces of glass at the end of each work day inspired him to start designed lampshades from them. He did continue doing the design work for the firm for a while, but soon he began exclusively designing and creating his signature lamps. A few artists and craftspeople worked with him to create the lamps, which were art but that he intended to be used in people’s homes and used, rather than simply admired.
They were created, and still are today by the best manufacturers like Dale Tiffany, in only about seven different styles with techniques that created different looks. One style of lamp, called Irregular Upper and Lower Border lamps, have openwork on the edges that makes the design look graced by tree branches and other foliage like shrubbery. This is a distinctive and unique Tiffany style. Some Tiffany Table Lamps have geometric styles, with squares, circles, ovals and triangles throughout the design. Others are called Transition to Flowers, because of the flower and botany focus, along with insects from nature like spiders and spiderwebs and dragonflies.
