I took this when my home was coming into its own style. The lamp ( one of four ) I had bought from a clearance of the furniture of the Saskatchewan Hotel in March of 1991, and for a short time the four of them sat unattended in my storage, until I turned one of the heavy ones over and noticed the Tiffany Studios, New York stamp on the bottom. The place that I bought them from had just gotten them in that day, so they never had turned it over to see the markings.

I think I was in 7th heaven for a long time after that...
and so many dealers wanting to buy them... they were authenticated by an expert from New York in late 2007.

Like a lot of tiffany lamps this was made specifically for this hotel which opened in 1926 and were 4 unique lamps, never made again. In the last photo, all I can say is that I spent many wonderful evenings sitting and reading a book from my library and looking up to see regal splendour in all directions, walls painted to resemble Egyptian Granite, part of a life that seems sometimes to be such bliss !!

The bible says There Are Many Mansions In Heaven, and now I seem to have found mine, and the time to enjoy it is now !

    By the way, can you tell me about the shades on the lamps?
  5. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 3 years ago
    they are not original, but I sold them for 40 times what I paid for them, so I felt I got a really good price for them. I just put in some cheap shades, stacked 4 together for each lamp and they fit perfectly. At one point I was getting an artist to mold some shades but it did not go well so abandoned that. I still have the shades at home but now use them on other lamps.

    What a beautiful collection. I love the statue of the boy playing the mandolin. How did you come across that one.

    I saw it at Christies at their Rockefeller Plaza galleries. I originally was interested in a small statue, and by the skin of my teeth, I pulled off buying this one . Worried me for some time. I probably would not have been bidding if I realized how heavy it was and how hard to get people to help move it. Here it is in the catalog:
