A History of Tiffany Lighting
This page on Lamps Plus provides a lot of fascinating information on Tiffany lamps. There is also a brief history of Louis Comfort Tiffany and the lamp company which still bears his name today. L.C. Tiffany was born in New York in 1848. His father was in the jewelry business and Louis Tiffany learned to work with glass and metal at his father's knee. Then, using bits of discarded glass from his father's factory, combined with his knowledge of metal and glass working, Louis Tiffany was able to create mosaic lamps of outstanding beauty, and the rest, as they say, is history. This page covers details of Tiffany's early days in the lighting business and highlights some of the early floor lamps and table lamps that became collector's items throughout the world. Many of the original molds which Louis Tiffany used in the creation of his masterpieces still exist, and so fine artisans are still able to recreate the beautiful table and floor lamps that have made the Tiffiny name synonymous with fine lighting products.
