Can you tell me about this lamp? I have 2 matching lamps. About 30 inches tall. Textured stained glass. No markings, No cracks. Very heavy solid bronze base with tiles and dragonflies also in base. 3-bulb pull chain. I have been told by a local stained glass expert that they could be valued between $30,000 and $2.8M each lamp. Please advise if you can.

    Hard to tell anything from the distance the lamp is photographed. A pair would be very unusual. If they are identical in every way, then Tiffany is not likely.

    also it's hard to tell with the lamp on. detailed pics of the glass up close with the lamp off would probably help as well.

    Not a Tiffany form I have ever seen, and I agree that an identical pair alone makes Tiffany very unlikely. Attribution is very difficult, since so many copies and look-alikes were made over the years. My impression is American last 1/4 20th C. Could also be high quality Chinese or Romanian.

    Maybe I'm being paranoid, but something seems off about this post. Why would anyone post their phone number here? Phishing scam, maybe? Also, that photo looks like something out of magazine, not an amateur shot. Fishy.

    and umm... Elizabeth Taylor?

    Well, the 785 area code is in Kansas, so that much is true.

    Thanks to those who have been helpful. I am adding some additional pics as soon as I can tell how to do so in the site and appreciate further information about my lamps. For those who have commented that my post might be phishing, please know that I am a real gal named Elizabeth Taylor. I posted my phone number in the original question so that others could contact me if that would be easier ( I know I am not so good at typing!!). I am just seeking information about my two lamps as I have been made an offer for them. I appreciate that one commentor thinks my photo looks like it came from a magazine. Thanks for that. My home, which I share as a B&B named The Woodward, is really lovely. I have been renovating it as well as the rest of my city block of homes into Inns for over 18 years. So, no phishing here except to gain information so that I can perhaps sell these lamps when the time comes.

    More about what I know about the lamps. I bought them at a large nationally advertised estate auction. They are 37" tall including the short finial. My local stained glass expert estimates they are between 1900 and 1936. The shade is copper foil, stained glass is textured. Base is solid brass and very heavy with inlaid glass tiles.

    Thanks again for all who can help. Elizabeth Taylor, http://www.thewoodward.com, 7853547111 in Topeka, Kansas.

    we really need better photos than this to help. they are absolutely lovely photos but it doesn't show the detail of the lamp we'd need to see to give you helpful or relevant information. Please add photos showing detail of the piece in natural lighting.

    I agree with Dasullywon on this. Not Tiffany, last half of the 20'th century.

  12. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 2 years ago
    If you got them at a large nationally advertised auction you can be guaranteed if they were tiffany they would have gotten a tiffany price tag.

    there are a bunch of these sold on liveauctioneers. Value is between 150 and 300 dollars from sold auctions.

    Thanks to greatsnowyowl. That auction pic is exactly the same only blue. Disappointing to know it has such little value, for such a lovely lamp! Happy to know the scoop though! Thanks so much!!

    Anyone with additional ideas, please advise.
