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 !
