Tiffany Studios, 10" blue Favrile floor lamp

ITEM # 1901094

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

ITEM # 2004024

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.

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.

ITEM # 2511042

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).

Tiffany Studios, 10" gold Favrile floor lamp

ITEM # 2706012

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.

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.

ITEM # 2510063

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.

Tiffany Studios, 10" red-brown Favrile counterbalance floor lamp

ITEM # 2006207

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.

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!

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.

ITEM # 2112007

When I bought this lamp, the base was nearly black with years of accumulated grime. Luckily, the dirt protected the original gold doré finish underneath. Cleaning revealed it was in superb condition. Add 10 gorgeous Favrile shades with great iridescence, and you've got one great Tiffany Studios lily lamp. 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.
