Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tiffany Studios produced thousands of lamps in hundreds of designs, although many of the designs were closely related. Examine how the forms, patterns, and motifs were changed and adapted in authentic Tiffany lamps made between 1900 and 1918. By closely looking at many varied designs of Tiffany shades, a deeper understanding of their quality and beauty is made possible.

Book News Annotation:

Tiffany lamps with their distinctive nature-based and other motifs have become such an icon of American design that the term is applied to virtually any lamp with a leaded-glass shade. The curator of The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass showcases many examples with zoom-in details of the real McCoy--with their original identifiers--created by the famed Tiffany Studios (1902-1932) of Louis C. Tiffany. She describes the innovative materials, design, color, patterns, and processes involved in the making of genuine Tiffany lamps and other decorative items.
