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.
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.
