Tiffany Style Table Lamps

Tiffany Lamp Sea Blue Stained Glass and Crystal Bead Dragonfly Style

This high quality classic Tiffany Style Table Lamp from Werfactory is certain not to bust your budget.

The  dome shaped shade features a band of dragonflies around the rim, with prominent  sea blues. The background color is a natural green interspersed with oval sea blue glass pieces that give to me the effect of light rain.

The Tiffany Style Lamp shade is produced using the traditional copper foil method. The manufacturer goes above and beyond in recognising the confusion many buyers have as to the authenticity of the glass and normally includes two pieces of sample glass with the lamp, one with a copper foil join, to register the authenticity of the glass.

The sturdy lamp stand and base is Zinc finished with Bronze coloring. The classic style compliments the shade perfectly.

This Lamp can be purchased with matching Tiifany Style Floor Lamps.

The color pattern of the shade is more subtle than many Tiffany Dragonfly Table Lamps. The soft warm lighting gives a cozy ambience to any setting.

When the lamp is off it is described by one Amazon purchaser, KeeKee, as having a “beautiful combo of deep sea blues/greens when it’s off, and muted blues/greens when it’s on”

As with most Tiffany Style Table Lamps they are more suited as an accent lamp, and do not throw off enough light to comfortable read by. The understated lamp is described by other Amazon purchasers as perfect for an end table or as a nightlight for a bedroom.

The quality of the lamp exceeds expectations set by the price point, being found “classy”  by Janet C, while Odysseus comments that it looks as good as the $400 Tiffany-style lamps at higher-end furniture stores.

Warehouse of Tiffany’s T18275TGRB Dragonfly Tiffany-Style Table Lamp with Lighted Base

This dazzling colorful Dragonfly Tiffany-Style Table Lamp really packs a visual punch between the eyeballs. It is hardly surprising that it is one of the most reviewed Tiffany Style Lamps on Amazon.

The dominant color of the dome shade is vivid blue and red. The dragonflies glitter against this background in resplendent shimmering silver hues for wings and majestic red bodies.

The blue glass panels are arranged at the top of the shade to form the appearance of the a river or pond. Green glass is then used to form the appearance of grass or rushes along the river bank, with colorful pieces in red, purples and brown symbolizing flowers or fruits.

The fun doesn’t stop with the shade. The opulent lighted mosaic Tiffany style lamp base feature more cut glass set on an detailed molded metal foundation. The colors featured in the base match and compliment those in the shade.

Over 400 pieces of cut glass are used to assemble the lamp.

The lamp is said to put out a decent amount of light, helping to show off the striking colors at their best.

This is a Tiffany Style Table Lamp that gets compliments according to purchasers. Christa D. Who places her lamp in the living room window gets stopped by her neighbors to ask about it while Reverend Jim says that he has “gotten great compliments on them over the years”

I have noticed a few minor issues caused in transit, by a minority of reviewers. These are often with the switches and bulb fittings and are rectified by the manufacturer. With a much larger number of reviews than most Tiffany style lamps there are bound to be a few highlighting issues.

Amora Lighting Tiffany Style Dragonfly Pendant Lamp AM1027HL18

This is a beautiful Tiffany Pendant Style Dragonfly Lamp.
 
The pre-dominant colors of the classical glass panels are Green, Yellow and Red.
 
Dragonflies in mottled yellow with vibrant red eyes rim the round shade. The wings are detailed with the  leadwork creating a striking latticed effect. The top of the shade features lush green glass panels draping down to jewel like panels of green, blue and gold. A yellowy orange band reminiscent of a sunset separates the foliage from the dragonflies.
 
While the larger glass pieces are assembled with the traditional copper foil method the leadwork of the dragonfly wings has been decorated on the outside. This does not, however, detract from the overall appearance.
 
I particularly like the variation of hue in the glass panels on this Tiffany Dragonfly Lampshade.
 
The lamp is said by Amazon reviewer TLC to “take powerful bulbs that shed good light”, so should be good for both practical purposes such as lighting a kitchen and to get the best out of the delightful patterned glass lampshade.
 
The lamp does need to be hardwired into the ceiling or will need converting to a swag fitting.
 
David L. Danek describes the Amora Lighting Tiffany Style Dragonfly Pendant Lamp on Amazon as 
“beautiful, sturdy and easy to install. Can’t imagine finding anything else that would look this good in our dining area for this price.”
 
Lora Gaddis enthuses on Amazon that  she “purchased this lamp as a focal point over a corner fireplace and am thrilled with the result. Unlit, it’s beautiful, colorful and dimensional. When it is lit, it’s spectacular …a real gem.”

Chloe Lighting  “Dragan” Tiffany-Style Dragonfly Table Lamp 16″ Shade

The opulent Chloe Lighting Tiffany-Style Dragonfly Table Lamp is resplendent with 330 pieces of cut glass, 48 cabochons (shaped and polished gemstone) and 18 crystals.

The Lamp features reds, yellows and browns. As perhaps evidence by the price point the glass pieces are resin rather glass. There is no variation in hue of the glass pieces as you would expect to find on a higher quality lamp. The lamp is otherwise hand assembled in a copper foil method.

The base complements the shade in a bronze finish. It provides a sturdy support.

There does appear to be a blue option, but no way of selecting between the two on Amazon. Most reviewers have received the red version.

JustMeOpinion, an Amazon purchaser states they “love this lamp, it’s beautiful. It’s not glass but you would not know by looking at it. I got 2”

VW states on Amazon “This brand of lamp is very good quality. The colors in the shade are very bright and beautiful. I have one on my bedside table. Very beautiful.”

Amora Lighting  Tiffany Style Stained Glass Hanging Lamp Ceiling Fixture AM1034HL14

This Amora Tiffany Style Hanging lamp revels in the deep colours of Fall.

The rich reds, oranges, browns and yellow glass pieces will bring a touch of warmth to any setting.

Yellow glass pieces filter down from the top of the shade, depicting the late sunset of Fall. The Rich earthy colors of foliage reach up towards the sunset pierced by bejewelled glass. Golden dragonflies festoon the rim of the Tiffany Style Lampshade.

When off the lamp can appear quite dark, but when lit up the lamp shines brilliantly with predominantly golden hues.

The design of the shade is similar to Amora’s Dragonfly Table Lamp reviewed above, which instead features Green, Yellow and Red colors.

This Amora lamp is not truly a swag lamp and will need hardwiring to the ceiling, which is something to bear in mind when purchasing.

Philip, on Amazon states that “This Dragonfly Tiffany Style is really the talk of most company that comes into the foyer of my home”

An unnamed Amazon customer says of the lamp “Amazing solid quality, definitely exceeded expectations, we were blown away with it lighted up, the dragonfly design is impressive.”

Tiffany Style Dragonfly Table Lamp, Red and Blue 27-Inch

The Warehouse of Tiffany’s 27 inch Tiffany Style lamp features over 240 pieces of glass and 60 pieces of jewels in stunning greens, purples and blues.

Delightful jade colored dragonflies band the rim of the shade. The dragonflies are set amongst a backdrop of deep red and orange foliage, topped by purple petals and an amber color ring.

The sturdy lamp is constructed in the traditional copper foil method. The base and cap of the lamp is finished in bronze to complement the shade.

Unlike lamps by other manufacturers this Tiffany Style lamp comes in a range of options. Although I am review the 27 inch table lamp, you are able to purchase a smaller 18 inch table lamp,  a ceiling lamp or a hanging lamp. This lamp design is truly suitable for a diverse number of settings.

Pam creates ambience in her bedroom with two of these lamps. Writing on Amazon she says “This lamp is beautiful! The workmanship is fabulous, the image and colors are clear and radiant!”

Some purchasers have noted minor issues with the copper foil work on their lamps.

Chloe Lighting  Dragan 2-Light Tiffany Style Dragonfly Semi Flush Ceiling Fixture CH33341DY16-UF2

The Chloe Lighting Tiffany-Style Uplighting Ceiling Shade is rich with yellows, reds and almost clear cuts of glass.

The colors become more subdued when unlit as is typical with Tiffany Lighting. The clear panels when lit become pale blues, while the reds and yellows become much darker shades of almost brown and green in comparison.

This is in fact more in tune with Louis Comfort Tiffany’s natural color palette than many of todays other Tiffany Lamp re-productions.

When lit the Tiffany Style shade really shines, with the large upwards facing dragonflies dominant with their piercing red eyes and golden wings.

The shade is made in the traditional copper foil method that you would expect, resplendent with 275 pieces of cut glass, 40 cabochons and 15 crystals.

Two 60 watt bulbs are recommended for the lamp. Most purchasers find this puts out plenty of light to show the lamp at its best when lit. 

The lamp is probably best used in conjunction with a dimmer switch. The dragonfly patterns may be at there best when the lamp is dimmed to a low setting.

Many of the earlier purchasers dating back to 2015 have commented on inadequate fitting instructions. These may have been improved by the manufacturer.

The Resident Gourmet devouring this lamp on Amazon says that they “Seriously doubt you are going to find a more gorgeous, high quality lamp in this size anywhere. Leave alone one this nice for such a laughably affordable price!”

Chloe Tiffany-style Dragonfly 3-Light Ceiling Pendant Fixture -CH2825DB18-DH3

I like this Chloe Lighting swag style Dragonfly ceiling lamp. It is a Tiffany Style Lamp that looks good unlit as well as gorgeous when illuminated.

Golden winged dragonflies adorn the rim of the shade contrast with rich orange bodies. The dragonflies nestle against a setting of yellow/orange foliage speckled with colored cabochons.

The light bright yellows and red of the shade are brighter than many of the other Tiffany ceiling lamps for sale on Amazon. Even unlit the shade has more subtle hues of blues, greens and  light browns almost of a pastel nature.

282 cut glass pieces and 54 cabochons are used in the assembly of this copper foiled lamp. The glass pieces look to be of good quality having variation in color and tone.

The recommended 3 60 watt bulbs really help to make the lamp glow when lit. A dimmer switch will allow you to alter the impact of the light, allowing you to have focused white light over where situated or if dimmed will provide a redder color.

Wayne Noffsinger states on Amazon that “This light is made of subdued bits of glass and when you flip the switch… POW! So gorgeous”

Randy K. Carpenter also enthuses on Amazon “This is without a doubt a big, bright, absolutely beautiful lamp and shade, and a great buy in this price range.”

Conclusion

With many of the floor lamps the dreaded Styrofoam gets a mention. At least it does ensure the lamps are in good condition when delivered. And once forewarned you can find an appropriate place, with which to unearth your treasure.

Quality Tiffany Floor Lamps – Review Best Tiffany Floor Lamp

Are you looking for Quality Tiffany Floor Lamps ? In my review I select the Top 3 Tiffany Style Floor Lamps with the best purchaser reviews. I provide objective information to help you purchase the best Tiffany Style Floor Lamps.

Tiffany Floor Lamp Dragonfly Design

The floor lamps that I am reviewing range from $79.99 to $449.99.

Dale Tiffany TF13066 Briar Dragonfly Floor Lamp,
19.0″ x 19.0″ x 62.5″, Antique Bronze

Dale Tiffany have been producing Tiffany Style Lamps for thirty years.

Dale Tiffany are one of the leading producers of Tiffany Style products.

They go the extra mile when sourcing unique colors and finishes to recreate quality Tiffany lamps.

Unlike many studios they use a hand-casting technique to pour the metal lamp bases.

And the shades they make use hand rolled art glass and are constructed using the traditional copper foil method as devised by Louis Comfort Tiffany.

A ring of striking green and amber butterflies sits atop a copper colored band on the otherwise cream colored shade of the Briar Tiffany Dragonfly Floor Lamp for sale on Amazon.

 

 

 

 

Tiffany Studios Peony Floor Lamp
Creative Commons TIFFANY STUDIOS LEADED GLASS AND BRONZE BORDER PEONY FLOOR LAMP. Circa 1920

The shade features hand rolled glass on a resin and metal base finished in an antique bronze finish. The base is relatively intricate for a Tiffany Style floor lamp, but not overtly so that it detracts from the impact of the shade.

The sturdy base adds an additional bit of character to the lamp.

The lamp is illuminated by two 100 watt bulbs and can be turned on and off with either an on/off socket or a pull chain switch.

Personally I would rather see more glass pieces in the shade for a lamp of this price. There is a nice amount of striation within each glass piece.

Perhaps due to the price, but there are only a limited number of reviews of this lamp on Amazon. This is the highest priced dragonfly floor lamp I have reviewed.

One purchaser has recorded issues with the build quality of the finial and a non-working light with his purchase, but was easily resolved by good customer services from Dale Tiffany with replacement parts.
From such a limited number of reviews this easily could have been an isolated incident, given Dale’s reputation in the market.

Across all purchasers the lamp is described as beautiful, very beautiful, loved with vibrant colors and stunningly gorgeous. A lamp that can win compliments.

Warehouse of Tiffany’s 1509-BB75B Dragonfly Tiffany-Style 72-Inch Torchiere Lamp

This Warehouse of Tiffany’s Dragonfly Floor Lamp is the most reviewed Tiffany Style Dragonfly floor lamp on Amazon, with a colossal 259 customer reviews at the time of writing.

The Torchiere Tiffany Style Lamp is patterned with a myriad of differing color hues in deep red, deep purple, deep green and gold, featuring subtly concealed dragonflies. 

The craftsmanship in the lamp is quite exquisite with the shade containing over 200 pieces of hand cut glass stained glass. The top edge is nicely scalloped.

The shade isn’t perhaps the widest at 15 inches in diameter, but it certainly packs a punch.

The solid zinc base and carousel-style pole aren’t too fussy and complement the shade nicely. The lamp adds a lot of character to the room and is quite a presence. The manufacturers photos do not do justice to how big the lamp is. 

The lamp is described by Amazon customers as having “a lot of eye-appeal” and Ray describes it as “Beautiful, mesmerizing, symbolic lighting”. When lit he goes on to describe the dragonflies as “vibrant”, with a quality that “seem to follow you round the room”.

Nikita was delighted with her lamp “over the moon about this floor lamp! It projects gorgeous color onto the wall behind it, and the glass is vibrant and expensive looking”

The packaging is solid, but many purchasers have commented that the Styrofoam breaks up making a mess.

A few people have used energy efficient bulbs, such as a CFL bulb, that project more light than a normal 60 watt bulb as recommended for the lamp, to help show off the shades colors in even more glory!

Due to the up lighting nature of this lamp, it should be considered more for ambient lighting and as a feature for your room, than for reading purposes.

Kalib B enthuses “I can say without a doubt that these are gorgeous lamps and worth every penny to purchase. I am just stunned at the quality; and when they are turned on, wow!”

Authentic Tiffany Floor lamps – Most Valuable / Where to Buy

In this blog I detail the Top 6 Antique Tiffany Floor Lamps sold at auction, including the outstanding Authentic Tiffany Dragonfly Floor Lamp on display at the Museum of Fine Art in Boston. Other historical Antique Tiffany Floor Lamps highlighted include a Poinesettia Floor Lamp and Daffodil Floor Lamp.

We then discuss where to buy Genuine Louis Comfort Tiffany Floor Lamps including the Macklowe Gallery in New York, top auction houses featuring Authentic Tiffany Lamps and auction listing sites that feature historical details of Real Tiffany Lamps sold at auction and upcoming auctions.

Tiffany Studios Peony Floor Lamp

If your looking to buy a Tiffany Style Floor Lamp then this review blog will give you the answers you need.

Antique Tiffany Floor lamps – Best Sold at Auction

Some examples of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s most famous tiffany floor lamps include:

1. Tiffany Studios Hanging Head “Dragonfly” Floor Lamp

The Museum of Fine Art in Boston have a fine example of the Tiffany Dragonfly Floor Lamp.

This lamp comes with a Mosaic and Turtle Back base and dates to between 1905 and 1910.

The dimensions of the lamp including shade and base are 33 1/8 x 22 1/2 inches.

In 1989 the lamp was acquired from Harvey Weinstein, by a Japanese collector Mr. Takeo Horiuch Mr Horiuch became an avid Tiffany collector and created the S. C. Tiffany Garden Museum in the coastal town of Matsue, Japan to house his collection. Arguably this collection became the most important Tiffany Studios and Art Nouveau to have existed. Circumstances dictated that the collection must be broken up and this Dragonfly Floor Lamp was acquired by Boston’s Museum of Fine Art via the auction house Michaan on December 12, 2012.

2. Tiffany Studios Patinated-Bronze and Leaded Favrile Glass Poinsettia Floor Lamp

This cone-shaped lamp features a myriad of poinsettia blossoms in mottled shades of pink, red and amethyst, set against a backdrop of green and amber leaves and a ground of mottled white and turquoise.

The dimensions of the lamp including shade and base are 64 x 28 1/4 inches.

The lamp coming from the Estate of Charles Davis White Thompson fetched $317,500 at Doyle’s Auction on September 29th, 2004.

Another example considered to be the finest Poinsettia floor lamp was sold at Christies on December 10, 1998 for $795,000, exceeding its estimate of $400,00-$600,000. This lamp was 78 in x 26 inches and dates to around 1910.

The Tiffany Poinsettia Floor Lamps were said to have been inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany’s love of nature as a Christmas piece, hence the red and green coloring.

According to a write up by Paul Doros for Sotheby’s the Poinsettia floor lamps first appeared for sale by Tiffany Studios around December, 2008. Poinsettia’s had already established a Christmas appeal in the United States since their introduction in 1828. These lamps were promoted as having a “distinctly Christmas atmosphere”.

The shades were available in six different sizes from 14 to 26 inches.

The table lamp version was not introduced for a further three years and was intended as a more affordable version, that was a “practical Christmas Gift of permanent value”.

3. Tiffany Studios Intaglio-Carved Favrile Glass, Turtleback Tile and Bronze Floor Lamp

An example of this lamp was sold by Christies in December 8th, 2000 for $25,850, exceeding the reserve price of $18,000 – $24,000.

Dating to around 1910, the lamp design feature three intaglio-carved dragonflies, a butterfly and a fly. The background color of the shade is a “Murano” green.

The dimensions of the lamp including shade and base are 53 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches.

4. Tiffany Studios Butterfly Etched Iridescent Favrile Glass and Bronze Floor Lamp

Waddington’s Auction House of Toronto, Canada sold this Tiffany Floor Lamp on June 10th, 2009 for more than double the top end of its reserve price, realising $25,200

The dimensions of the lamp including shade and base are 54 x 10.2 inches.

5. Tiffany Studios, Leaded Daffodil Floor Lamp

This gorgeous Tiffany Floor lamp was sold by James D. Julia auction house on November 28, 2012.

Realising over 9 times the upper reserve price, the lamp realized $13,800 at the auction. While not as intricate as the Dragonfly floor lamp above, I personally believe this was excellent value for the delightful design, number of glass pieces and color palette.

Featuring yellow daffodils and green leaves, set against a mottled blue background the shade rests upon an undecorated brass junior floor base.

The shade dates from 1919 and the complete lamp measures 64 x 20 inches.

6. Tiffany Studios A Favrile Glass and Patinated Bronze Floor Lamp, circa 1900

This Tiffany Bronze Floor Lamp sold at Bonham’s auction house in London, United Kingdom on October 7th, 2015.

The lamp dating to around 1900 realized $1500 at auction.

Being one of Tiffany’s earlier pieces it is simpler in design than the Dragonfly or Daffodil floor lamps and does not feature the copper foil method of manufacture.

The dimensions of this lamp were not listed.

The six floor lamps listed above range in value from around $2000 to over $300,000. The values reached at auction date back to as far as the year 2000, so there is sure to be a significant increase in the value of these authentic Tiffany Floor Lamps if they went to auction today.

Where to buy Real Tiffany Lamps – Genuine Tiffany Floor Lamp
