If you want to add a touch of class and sophistication to any setting, then you may want one. Tiffany lamps are made with exquisite pieces of stained glass which are soldered together to form beautiful scenes or conceptual motifs. These beautiful lamps generally have a solid metal base which is also delicately decorated. The designer of these beautiful creations is none other than Louis Comfort Tiffany. The first Tiffany lamp to be made was in New York in 1899. He made it in his studio that was devoted specifically to working with just lamps.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers’ own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
