16" diameter Acorn pattern table lamp with exceptionally pretty white mottled glass with significant yellow speckling. The patina is black and the signature tag is small, both indicative of an early lamp, probably from the 1890s. Originally the base would have been kerosene, but it was later converted to electricity.
The base is even rarer than the shade. It is hand-blown Favrile glass that complements the shade well. The bronze parts have a beautiful original patina. Acorn is not a rare pattern, but this example is. Wonderful condition with very few hairline cracks in the shade. Mint condition base. Properly signed on both the shade and base.
Oak Leaf & Acorn is a lovely decoration. On finer examples, the leaves and acorns are mottled. This gorgeous example is 18" diameter with really great color and mottling. The base is a killer example called a cushion base. It's similar to a library base, but has no feet. It's solid bronze and really heavy.
The patina is fantastic on both the shade and base and the lamp is fully and properly signed on both. The condition is superb with very few, if any, hairline cracks.
If you're looking for a truly special example of Oak Leaf & Acorn, this is it!
I'm excited to have just acquired this lamp. As most of you know, blue Favrile shades are very rare. This one is a beauty, fully decorated with rare spider webbing. The shade is fairly opaque, so the color of the blue does not fade when illuminated. It looks almost identical on and off.
The base has a fancy decorated column and foot with a gorgeous original patina. It's one step up the ladder of sophistication and rarity. Overall, this lamp is the cat's meow. Fully signed shade and base.
Are you aware that the last blue Favrile lamp to come up at auction (Sotheby's New York, December 18, 2008) sold for $40,000 + 25% buyer's premium, for a total of $50,000? Click on this link: Sotheby's blue Favrile lamp. That lamp had several large fitter chips and a very ordinary base. This lamp is a better lamp at a much better price. It won't last long.

Tiffany Studios, 10" Blue Wave Favrile Counterbalance Floor Lamp
The 10" Favrile shade on this lamp is wonderful and different than the typical shade, because of two reasons. First the wave decoration has blue color, instead of the usual green. That alone makes the shade special. Second, the shade is unlined, so it lights up warmer and brighter.
The base is a very desirable model, with a wave decorated foot, in very nice condition.
Overall, the lamp has no excuses. The shade is very beautiful, fully signed and in extra mint condition. The base is fully signed and in excellent condition.
If you're looking for a Tiffany Studios floor lamp that's a cut above the usual, this lamp is for you.
Item #: 2004024
Tiffany Studios, 10" Favrile Aladdin Floor Lamp
Most Tiffany 10" Favrile floor lamps are of the 3-legged or 5-legged variety. It's rare and very desirable to find one with an original, wonderful Aladdin lamp base. This example is adjustable in height and has a wonderful original patina. The shade also can swing to direct the light to your side chair or sofa. The shade is particulary nice with great green color and ribbing. The base is solid bronze and very heavy, so you needn't worry about an animal knocking it over. Properly signed on the shade and base. Mint condition.
Tiffany Favrile shades really do vary in quality. This shade is evidence. The color is wonderful, the ribs show nicely, and there are two gorgeous intaglio-carved dragonflies. Favrile shades don't come much better.
The counterbalance base is exceptional too, with an original rich green-brown patina in superb condition. Most people prefer the counterbalance base to the harp base.
Other than one very small chip to the fitter rim (completely hidden and only mentioned for accuracy), this lamp is a gem. 10" diameter shade, approximately 58" tall. Signed shade and base.
I sell Tiffany floor lamps very quickly, so make your decision soon, before it's gone.
There is a big range of quality in Tiffany Favrile glass shades. This example is killer. The colors are very rich, with incredible rainbow iridescence from purple to red to green. (Make sure you click on the thumbnail photo at left to see closeup photos of the shade.) The spider web decoration is very rare and very desirable. Couple that with a mint patina counterbalance 5-legged base, and you've got one great lamp. The shade condition is extra mint, including the fitter rim. Signed both shade and base.
I probably buy and sell more Tiffany floor lamps than most any dealer, so I'm familiar with all the nuances. This example is special, mostly because the shade is killer. It's 10" diameter green Favrile with very distinct ribbing (a big plus) and a beautifully intaglio-carved insect near the fitter rim. The five-legged counterbalance floor base is very desirable, especially with a rich, original, green-brown patina. Signed on the shade and base. Excellent condition except for some polishing on the fitter rim (of little importance, completely hidden in the fitter, and only mentioned for accuracy).

It's one of the most exceptional examples I've ever owned. Properly signed on the base and shade. 10" diameter shade x 17½" tall. Mint condition.

Tiffany Studios, 10" Gold Favrile Floor Lamp
I've recently been lucky enough to purchase several excellent Tiffany Favrile floor lamps. This is one of the examples.
The shade is 10" diameter in a rich butterscotch color, with strong ribbing that shows especially well when lit. The base is a bronze harp, with a wonderful wavy base and a gold doré finish.
The condition of the shade is excellent except for two very small chips on the fitter rim that are completely hidden when attached to the lamp. Additionally there are two tiny air bubbles on the surface, both original. One is open and the other is closed. They're unimportant and only mentioned for accuracy. The finish on the base shows some wear commensurate with its age.
The shade has an engraved signature on the fitter rim "L.C.T." and the base is signed underneath "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 682".
Here's why I love this lamp. First it's got the very rare and desirable Alladin floor base, which is very heavy and not about to tip over. It has an adjustment knob to raise or lower the arm, but I'm not sure why anyone would want to do that, but at least you can. Next it's got a gorgeous 10" diam. gold Linenfold shade with rich color. Click on the thumbnail photo on the left to see several photos of this special lamp. Beautiful condition. Signed shade and base.

Tiffany Studios, 10" Green Linenfold Counterbalance Floor Lamp
Everyone likes Tiffany Studios Linenfold lamps, so take a close look at this one, because it's special.
First the color is glorious, in two shades of green. The main panels are more kelly green, while the top and bottom rows are more olive green. Green Linenfold shades are much rarer than gold ones. Then take a look at the beautiful etched pattern on the top of the shade -- a very nice touch. (Click on the thumbnail photo at the left to see several closeup photos.)
Second, the very desirable counterbalance floor base has a superb original green-brown patina.
This is a no excuses lamp in very fine original condition. There are no cracks or damage to the shade at all. The patina on the base is very rich, with only a few minor rubs or scratches, commensurate with its age. The lamp is fully signed on the shade and base.
This lamp will not last long, so act soon to avoid being disappointed.
I get about one green Linenfold shade for every five I buy. They're moderately rare and very desirable. This example is a beauty, with vivid green color. The base is a very fine counterbalance example with a decorated column. The base platform is ribbed, with eight fancy, turned feet. The acid-speckled original finish is in very nice condition. So is the shade, with no hairline cracks and no restoration. The shade has a full signature "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK PAT APPL'D 1936", while the base has the usual "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK" signature. 10" diameter shade. The lamp is approximately 54" tall, depending on the position of the arm.
I regularly buy Tiffany Linenfold counterbalance floor lamps because they go with every style of furniture from 18th century English to modern. And everyone has a floor, so no excuses there. But the quality and condition vary considerably from example to example. This example has no cracks or repairs in the shade and the patina is fabulous. The base is solid bronze and very heavy, so you won't have to worry about your toddler or pet knocking it over. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer example. 10" diameter shade x 53" tall. Signed both shade and base. Superb condition.
Just got this beauty. Green Linenfold shades are much rarer than gold shades. This shade is super mint with a couple of rare and desirable variations. The first variation is that the green color in the upper and lower borders are the same but different than the large panels in the center. The second variation is that on the top of the shade there is beautiful random applied threading. Just a super little added touch.
Everyone seems to like Tiffany Studios Linenfold lamps. This example has a 10" diameter shade with rich gold coloration. Both the base and shade are finished in gold doré which is in very nice condition. There are no cracks in the shade and there has been no repair. Signed on both the shade and base. It's a very fine example for discriminating collectors.

Tiffany Studios, 10" Linenfold Floor Lamp
This lamp is killer. It's only the second time in many years that I've owned this important 10" Linenfold lamp with elaborate decoration and hoof feet. A truly outstanding example with great color in the shade. The gilding bronze base is bright and original. Just a super lamp for the best homes. Signed shade and base.
Most Favrile shades have wave decoration. This example has King Tut decoration, also known as Damascene. It's rare to find this decoration on a Tiffany 10" Favrile shade. This particular shade has really special color. The gold is so rich that it's really a brown shade with gold King Tut decoration and strong red iridescent highlights -- just spectacular. The base is a classic five-legged counterbalance with very good patina. Excellent condition. Signed shade and base.

Tiffany Studios, 10-Light Lily
I recently had several Tiffany lily lamps for sale and then sold them all, so for a while I had none. I'm pleased to say that now I have a good one. It's a wonderful 10-light, with matching shades and a really gorgeous patina. Those are the two most important qualities to look for and this lamp has them both. The base and all of the shades are signed. The lamp is as nice an example as you could ask for. For the best collections!

Tiffany Studios, 10-Light Lily
Some Tiffany Studios lily lamps stand head and shoulders above the rest. This is one of those examples. It has 10 lights, with beautifully matched, highly iridescent, heavily fluted shades. That's what you want to see in a lily lamp. It also has all of the original porcelain sockets and has been professionally rewired. You'll find many lily lamps were rewired with brown plastic sockets to replace the defective ones. Not this example. Then you want a rich, original, green-brown patina. Check. Lastly you want all of the shades and the base to be signed. No problem.
I've bought and sold countless numbers of Tiffany lily lamps over the years and this is one of the best. It will look great in your home.

All of the shades are signed (as well as the base) and in mint condition except for one flea bite out of the fitter rim of one of the shades.

Tiffany Studios, 12" Acorn Floor Lamp
Tiffany didn't make many smaller leaded glass floor lamps. Most of the smaller ones are either Favrile glass or Linenfold.

The colors show well when the lamp is lit (see the additional photos by clicking on the thumbnail photo at left). This is a superb example. Super condition. Signed shade and base.

Tiffany Studios, 12" Blue Favrile Floor Lamp
Let me try to list the ways that this lamp is incredible. First, it's blue and blue Favrile lamps are rare and very desirable, the bluer, the better. Second, it's 12" in diameter. Most examples are smaller, either 10" or even smaller. Third is the wheel-carving of butterflies, flowers and vines. Most examples have no carving at all. This one has beautiful carving. Some blue shades lose their blue color when lit. Not this one. The base is called a double harp because there are knuckles on the left and right that allow the shade to swivel. The patina is rich, beautiful and original. The lamp is signed on the shade and base and is for the best collections. It would be hard to find a finer example. Mint condition.

Tiffany Studios, 12" Favrile Floor Lamp
It's been a long time since I've owned a Favrile lamp of this quality. This model base with the wooden drink tray table is rare, desirable and supremely utilitarian.

This lamp won't last long. Fully signed. Mint condition (except for minor staining on the wooden tray). 55½" tall. (#61209)

Tiffany Studios, 15" Spider Lamp
Tiffany's Spider design is very desirable. It's one of the unique lamps that Tiffany is known for. I've only had a few examples over the years because they're hard to find and usually too expensive. This lamp came straight from its original home in New Hampshire. All I did was have it rewired professionally and waxed to bring out the great original patina. The beautiful green glass that transitions to white glass with green mottles is all original and in superb condition (except for two cracked tiles, only mentioned for accuracy). The original patina on the base is exceptional. 15" diameter.
Signed on the shade TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 337-10. Dash numbered shades are usually higher quality than other examples. It means they were part of a limited edition of a few lamps with special glass. Signed on the underside of the base with a matching number to the shade TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 337.
The lamp is very fairly priced and will be gone soon. If it's for you, contact me soon so as not to be disappointed.
