How to Tell If a Tiffany Lamp Is Real
- Know the correct time period and look of original Tiffany lamps.
- Look at the makers' marks.
- Check if the markers are of the same patina (or coloring) as the surrounding area.
- Look for applied antique coloring to the glass of the lampshade.
- Look for cracks in the glass.
Additionally, how much is a Tiffany lamp worth? Tiffany lamps' value can be anywhere from $4,000 to over $1 million. The most expensive Tiffany lamps sell for upwards of $1 million. The highest price ever paid for a Tiffany lamp remains $2.8 million at a Christie's auction in 1997.
Just so, where are the markings on a Tiffany lamp?
Tiffany used both leaded glass and blown glass shades. The markings for the leaded glass shades (assuming they are signed) is almost always on the bottom inner metal rim edge of the shade, stamped into the metal. It should always have the words “TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK” in all capital letters.
Why are Tiffany lamps so expensive?
Why Tiffany lamps are so expensive Tiffany lamps are expensive because they are never mass-produced or machine-made. Every single lamp is made by hand, so the sheer effort involved in producing a single lamp commands a high price tag. Second, they are made using materials of the highest quality that do not come cheap.
