Tiffany lamp have always symbolized originality, style and elegance. The key to its popularity has been and still is, the warm colors, the original motives and the solid production. Nowadays the lamps are produced in thousands of different designs, shapes, colors and qualities and are sold worldwide. All have one thing in common: colorful lampshades that glow with warm pleasant light.
Tiffany lamps were created not only to illuminate rooms, but also to be a beautiful decoration of the interior. The lamps enrich the room's decor and create an unique style.
Hundreds of templates allows for a variety of designs and sizes. Most of the designs are inspired by nature and are focused on flowers, insects and animals. There are also a variety of geometric motifs. For example, several lamps are created in Jugend style.
It was Louis Comfort Tiffany, a well known American artist, who is the creator of these colorful glass lamps. Originally, he was painter, but at the age of 27 he became interested in glass art. He wanted to create a lamp shade with colored glass for the "new electric light", which was significantly stronger than that obtained with kerosene lamps.
Tiffany’s works quickly became popular and he established a jewelry company which manufactured lamps, jewelry and porcelain. Louis Comfort Tiffany is known internationally as one of the foremost artists in glass art and Art Nouveau.
The starting material in the production process is colored glass that are cut and shaped to fit into the work. Glass pieces are coated with copper foil and soldered together using a mixture of tin and lead. (For environmental reasons our lamps are soldered "lead free"). Previously this technique was used to produce colored windows, mainly in churches. Tiffany lamps were originally made entirely by hand but in modern times techniques have been developed to streamline the process, allowing for attractive prices for manually designed works.
The term “Tiffany lamps” is now used very widely and there is a lot of confusion about what is original and what is copy. The lamps can be divided into three categories:
1. Original Tiffany lamps: These were created in the Tiffany Studios in New York. Often they are labeled by number and signature on the bottom. The originals reach six figures in sales at antiques auctions in the United States.
2. Tiffany-reproductions: Lamps that are exact copies of the works made at Tiffany Studios. These lamps are priced at the U.S.market between 500-5000 U.S. dollars.
3. Lamps in Tiffany style are all the other lamps that are produced using the same technology as the original Tiffany lamps. These lamps come in a variety of shapes and styles and are produced in different countries. Generally speaking, these are considerably cheaper than the originals and reproductions.
All of the above categories is called in the vernacular for Tiffany Lamps
