Wisteria Tiffany Lamps epitomise the influences that led Louis Comfort Tiffany to design his famous lamps. The Morse Museum highlights how in 1902 won no less than two major prizes in the Prima Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte Decorativa Moderna, in Turin, Italy. The exhibition was of great importance to Tiffany as it focused on the beauty of form in practical objects. The Wisteria Lamp was one of the lamps to win the prestigious award.

The famous lamp is now on show in the Morse Museum in Florida.

Please note:

Tiffany Style Lamps look darker when unlit, and colors can appear changed. This is normal for a Tiffany Style Lamp. In fact many Tiffany Style Lamps are brighter than authentic Tiffany Lamps produced by Tiffany Studios.

My tabular summaries of Tiffany Lamps highlight colors of the lamps in a lit state. Dimensions refer to the overall height and width of the lamp.

Chloe Lighting  Tiffany-Style Wisteria 2 Light Table Lamp CH33373WP16-TL2

See the Chloe CH33373WP16-TL2 Table Lamp on Amazon: 

This colorful Tiffany Style Lamp features luxurious pastel shades of purples, yellows, oranges and greens sitting proudly atop an ornate dark bronze stand, reminiscent of a tree trunk and roots.

With 522 pieces of cut glass, when lit the lamp is sure to create a rainbow style effect in your room. The glass pieces look good with a variation in color shade and patina that you would expect in a quality Tiffany reproduction lamp.

Unlit the shade will appear to be dark blue/lavender in color.

The lamp features traditional copper foil leadwork, such as used in original Tiffany Studios Lamps. The lamp is operated by a pull cord switch which is a feature you would also expect in a reproduction lamp.

The lamp is considered heavy, but it appears that the lamp base is moulded and finished in the bronze metal style.

There are in fact two pull cords operating the two separate bulbs independently. This means that you can put higher wattage bulbs in to maximise the color hues when the lamp is lit, or alternatively you can mix it up a bit and put a dimmer bulb in for using as a nightlight and a brighter bulb to use as a reading lamp.

Crafty Kim a purchaser on Amazon states that this is a “beautiful lamp for a great price”

Trina Cedeno enthuses on Amazon that she found the lamp “

Literally breath taking. It’s HUGE. A show stopper piece!! One of my best purchases ever!!!”

Other Amazon purchasers found it added an artistic touch to their room, the colors were brighter than expected when lit and that perhaps the purples came out more than imagined.

Vital Stats:

Blue Wisteria Tiffany Style Table Lamp with Tree Trunk Base

 

Click to see the 1908 Wisteria Tiffany Style Lamp on Amazon:

 

This exquisite Mission Style Tiffany Lamp from 1908 Studios ticks many of my boxes when looking for a Tiffany Style Wisteria Lamp.

While many shades are rounded at the bottom this mission style lamp helps to give the real impression of lush draping foliage.

The lamp features the most impressive number of cut glass pieces in any Tiffany Style Shade that I have reviewed to date.

1200 pieces of hand cut glass in mottle blues with  greens leaves. The lamp is finished in the traditional lead copper foil method.

The tree trunk style base, finished in bronze, compliments the shade well. But to my mind, from the photos on Amazon, look slightly too yellow, with a visible join in the middle. I think the shade would look even better, when paired with a stand of higher quality.

Skip, having purchased the lamp on Amazon, says of the lamp “They are the most beautiful shades of blue and purple and green and are prettier than I could have imagined in person.”

Brendan states after his Amazon purchase “I was nervous about what color this lamp was going to be. So, I was thrilled when I opened the box to see all of the beautiful blue hues! This lamp is HUGE! The photos do not really do it justice when it comes to the size of this lamp!”

A couple of purchasers felt that the copper soldering could have been a bit stronger for such a heavy lamp, but that this did not detract from the performance of the lamp.

I do feel that the manufacturer should put, as have other manufacturers, a picture of the lamp when unlit. This would help to avoid the confusion some purchases have as to how strikingly different the color of a Tiffany Style Lamp can be between the lit and unlit states.

Vital Stats:

Pros:

  • Likeness to original lamp
  • Impact
  • Number of Glass pieces
  • Good Size

Cons:

  • Color/finish of base
  • Different batches not reflected in images by seller
  • Minor quality issues

Meyda Tiffany 124812 Nightfall Wisteria Mini Table Lamp, 14″ Height

 

Click to see the Meyda Tiffany Wisteria Lamp on Amazon:

 

 

 

Compared to most Tiffany Style Wisteria Lamps this Meyda offering is miniature by comparison. The lamp would be ideally suited as a nightlamp or in a room where space is at a premium, and a larger lamp would be overwhelming.

The shade is in the floral nouveau style with pale blue, blue/green and green leave glass pieces . The blue sky glass pieces have a nice variation in hue, but the  green leaf glass pieces are of not such high quality, in my opinion.

A visit to Meyda’s own site confirm that the lamp is constructed in the traditional copper foil method is unclear.

The shade sits on a suitably dark bronze style stand with tree effect, that compliments the shade nicely.

Lok states on Amazon, that the lamp is “Tiny, but beautiful” and that the lamp is not suitable for reading, but simply as a detail lamp with really nice colors.

For convenience, as you might expect in a lamp such as this the switch is located on the cord near the base, making it ideal to use if you are in bed.

Vital Stats:

Pros:

  • Suitable as nightlamp/for small rooms.
  • Convenient switch.

Cons:

  • Overpriced for size of lamp
  • Green glass panels do not have variation in hue.

Chloe Lighting CH16828P-TL2 Tiffany-Style Wisteria 2-Light Table Lamp with Shade, 24 x 16 x 16″, Bronze

 

Click to see the Chloe CH16828P-TL2 Wisteria Lamp on Amazon:

 

 

Strong sky blues interspersed with occasional deep green and yellow foliage make this Tiffany Style Wisteria Lamp from Chloe Lighting an attractive lamp when unlit.

When lit the blues evolve into lighter tones of purple and pinks. The foliage lightens into mainly yellows with the remaining foliage lighter shades of green.

The resin copper finished stand the Wisteria Style Tiffany shade sits on isn’t perhaps the normal tree trunk inspired feature, but is a very elegant, detailed and charming addition.

The glass, as you would expect from a Tiffany Style Lamp, is hand rolled. By their very nature Chloe Lighting are keen to point out that you are looking to buy a unique lamp and as such, colors can vary slightly.

One unnamed Amazon Purchaser states “They are gorgeous!” continuing, that “

They look exactly like the picture when you turn the lights on. Beautiful blues, purples, pinks with a touch of green & black. I’m really happy with them.”

Flora, describing her lamp purchased on Amazon, states that “

It’s probably the most beautiful one that I’ve purchased with the light off. When the lamp is on, it’s also very pretty with the different shades of purple.”

Many of the Amazon purchaser reviews for this particular Chloe Tiffany Lamp highlight some quality issues. This are quite aged and the recent reviews appear to indicate that the quality issues have largely been resolved.

It is worth considering that this is one of the cheaper Tiffany Style Lamps that is available.

Vital Stats:

Pros:

  • Looks good when unlit
  • Price
  • Two separately controlled bulbs

Cons:

  • Quality
  • Parts missing
  • Packaging

30″ H Stained Glass Tiffany Inspired Grand Wisteria Table Lamp with Tree Trunk Base

 

Click to see River of Goods Tiffany Style Wisteria Lamp:

 

The River of Goods Tiffany inspired Wisteria Table Lamp is Grand in more than just name.

The dreamy foliage of greens and purples tumble down the shade in spectacular fashion to deep sky blues banding the rim. The top of the shade feature a lattice work of copper foil leadwork free of glass panels that really allow the 3 bulbs to provide patterned light upwards.

The quality copper foil leadwork provides structure to the lamp, and really makes the stems of the Wisteria stand out like no other Tiffany Style Lamp I have reviewed to date.

Featuring nearly 2000 pieces of glass and 30 inches of overall height, this stunning lamp will make a big statement in any setting.

No two glass pieces are alike, featuring a myriad of color with hues of green, blue and purple. These colors are perfectly balanced to truly reflect Wisteria.

The shade sits on a sturdy copper style base, reminiscent of a tree trunk, the color of which matches some of the yellow/green glass panels when lit.

This is a large lamp, weighing nearly 20 pounds and will need to be place on an appropriate table for its size.

Jean M. West, Amazon Purchaser, states that she “was impressed with the depth and variety of coloration in this lamp” and continues to enthuse that she is ” I am thrilled with the beauty of the glass when illuminated.”

Kris Yard commenting on her Amazon purchase that the lamp is  “Very well made and most definitely a work of art! Even prettier than I expected….”

The lamp receives many five star reviews on Amazon, and few if any quality issues have been noted.

Tiffany Style Table Lamp Light Green Wisteria Stained Glass Lampshade

WERFACTORY have replicated their Light Green Wisteria shade into a variety of forms

They have table lamps from 8 through 16 inches wide and up to 24 inches tall,  floor lamps and ceiling shades.

The lamp is well reviewed, and is one to the cheapest on Amazon, but I find that there is no variation in color in the glass pieces on the shade.

These are definitely lamps that will brighten up your home, and the greens may be just the match for your color scheme.
