Tiffany By Design: An In-Depth Look At Tiffany Lamps (Schiffer Book For Designers & Collectors)

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.

I bought this book as a souvenir after seeing The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. This book was a good value for the price. However, it is worth noting that the white background of the photos did not enhance the beauty of the lamps as well as a darker background would have. One book on the subject with much more vivid photos is The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany. If I wanted to spend more, I would have bought that book instead.

Eight color photos do more than display Tiffany lamps, as other titles do: they have been polled from thousands of lamps with hundreds of designs to show the differences in shade patterns and complexity. A lovely display of colors and patterns is accompanied by clear description and artistic and collector value insights. "Tiffany By Design" is an outstanding reference and a welcome addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library Antiques & Collectibles reference collections.Diane C.

From a survey of the types of glass to detailed information on lamp patterns and construction, Nina Gray never disappoints with her scholarship. This is a must for the Tiffany enthusiast! I LOVE it!
