"Venetian" Tiffany Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York "Venetian" glass and bronze desk lamp with geometric and floral motif in yellow, blue, red, and green hues. The lamp features three rows of graduated medallions framed in deep yellow glass. The bottom row has green stylized trees with red accents on blue background. The middle row is geometric yellow and green designs on blue background. The top row has green stylized leaves, also on a blue background. All the leading is gilt. An interesting fact about this lamp is that Venetian lamps when first offered for sale had a list price of $250, while the Wisteria lamps were priced at $400, giving an indication of the importance of this design style. This was stated in the J. Walter Thompson price list of 1906. A similar lamp is pictured in: The Lamps of Tiffany, by Dr. Egon Neustadt, New York: The Fairfield Press, 1970 p.72, plate 104.

Tiffany Studios "Cypriote" Miniature Vase

An early and unusual Tiffany Favrile glass Cypriote vase. The rounded body of the vase is decorated near the tapered neck and near the foot with an iridescent swirling motif in richly saturated tones of gold and ochre, framing a series of central pointed oval "window" panels of textured "Cypriote" glass, resting on a small circular foot, signed on the underside. Cypriote is a textured glass achieved at Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company by rolling glass over a marble or iron surface covered with pulverized bits of the same glass. Its iridescence and bubbles resembled the decomposed surface of Roman glass discovered during archeological explorations on the island of Cyprus, hence its name. Lava glass evolved from Cypriote glass by using thicker, brighter glass and dripping golden glass irregularly over the surface. Tiffany created a unique numbering system for his artistic glass. Beginning in 1892, glassware was progressively signed 1-9999. The next series deployed an "A" as a prefix, making it easy to date this "E" prefix vase to 1896. Vases with prefixes of J, N and V have dates confirmed by international exhibitions, as do vases with suffixes of J and M. Vases from 1928, the last year of production were signed with a suffix "W". It appears that starting in 1906 each new year ushered in a new letter. While the diligence of the Tiffany Studios records cannot be veri ... fied due to a catastrophic fire that closed the factory in 1928, if one follows the logic of the numbering system it is possible that as many as 490,000 artistic vases were produced at the Tiffany Studios New York from 1892-1928. A similar vase is pictured in: A pair of Tiffany Studios New York "Three-Light Lily" patinated bronze sconces with gold favrile shades. The fetching sconces are made visually interested by the unusual decision to make a downward facing bloom, giving off warm halos of light to the scenes in the room they occupy rather than the ceiling. Similar sconces are pictured in: "Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models", by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors'' Club, 1988, p. 350, plate 1451.
