Louis Tiffany began creating his signature lamps in 1895, while working as a stained glass designer for an interior design company in New York. The leftover bits of multicolored glass intrigued him, and he began assembling them into beautiful designs lamps. Soon, while he was still designing for the company as well as painting, he began designing lamps that would become known as one of the most important American artistic contributions of the late 19th century. His lamps became part of Europe’s Art Nouveau movement, and heavily influenced stained glass creation.
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.
