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. More Tips: If you are thinking of buying a lamp because you suspect it is an authentic Tiffany Lamp or are told it is a Tiffany Lamp, do your due diligence and ask a ton of questions about it’s history and how the dealer obtained the lamp. If the person you are buying the lamp from is selling it as an authentic, be sure to get a written guarantee.
There are a great many Tiffany style lamps offered on the open market today. Organic designs featured strongly on the original Tiffany lamps and were a statement of their time. Art Nouveau was the new trend fashion and organic shapes and colours were very much the in thing. Today, many reproductions are manufactured of the original Tiffany lamps. As well as the reproductions, there is a huge selection of styles of Tiffany lamps today featuring designs from all eras. Every variation of style is available from Cubist, Art Deco and even modernist examples. All in my view are object d’art and tell of the artisans who create such beautiful home decor items.
