With its stained glass patterns of intricate design, Tiffany lamps are unlike any other lamp in the world. From the moment you see one you know what it is. In their basic function, Tiffany lamps provide light. Their beauty though seems to transform your light to an eye-catching focal point of the room. Let’s take a moment to explore some of the aspects of Tiffany lamps.
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.
The lamps became more popular during the early 1900s and demand for them increased. Tiffany hired a staff of unmarried women workers who became known as the "Tiffany Girls". The Tiffany Girls helped design and cut glass to produce the lamps. One such woman was Clara Driscoll, who eventually became the director and designer of many of Tiffany’s most popular designs. Some of her most popular designs were the Wisteria, Dragonfly, Peony, and the Daffodil.
Once the glass pieces were cut, he cleaned each piece and applied copper foil to the edges. The pieces were then laid out to match the pattern design, Tiffany would then solder each piece together; thereby creating one solid piece from once was many individual pieces of glass. The copper foil helped bond the solder to each piece of glass, creating a lamp shade that consisted of a single, solid wire throughout. A final cleaning would bring out the vibrant colors of the shade.
