The Wisteria design is one of Tiffany’s most popular designs. This design became quite popular because the finished lamp actually looks like a Wisteria tree. The lamp fixture resembles the trunk while the lamp shade looks like the blossoming limbs. Detail of branches and limbs hanging down were added to add great detail to the shade. The use of vibrant color and irregular edges draw a second or third look to see if it is indeed a lamp shade. With their resurgence of popularity, it is very difficult to find an authentic Tiffany lamp. Some original Tiffany lamps have commanded prices in the millions of dollars for a single lamp.

Light the lamp and look at the glass. One of the appealing qualities of an original Tiffany is the glass quality and type. The colors of the glass should appear as different colors when the lamp is turned on. If you have a legitimate Tiffany Lamp, you should also notice that there will be random panes of glass on your lamp that have specs of different colors on them. This is called confetti glass.
