    These are the first 4 pictures I took of the 4 lamps I bought in 1991. The set of four lamps are all marked Tiffany Studios New York. These are institution size so taller than most Tiffany lamps I have seen. Six and 1/2 feet in height.

    The Hotel Saskatchewan in 1991 was doing a large renovation of the historic hotel and selling off most of the furnishings in Saskatoon by the Great West auction. Most was sold by fixed price and there were many desks and desk lamps from the 1970's. On the second day I came back after work and there were 4 of these extremely heavy lamps together and my heart sank I wanted them so bad. They were only priced at 100 dollars each and had gold and black paint on them so I had thought they were just metal lamps. Because of the weight no person had turned them upside down to see the Tiffany stamps on them. I was very nervous as they were being delivered and at one point or two I thought they were never coming. They sat in a storeroom for a few months and then I decided to use them. When I turned them over just then did I notice the Tiffany Studio marks. After taking off some of the paint I noticed gold tones and then hired a lamp worker to restore them to their former glory for 2 months, which was mostly removal of the paint and dirt.

    These lamps are like no other and were made for this historic hotel, They are the only ones known to exist. In 2007 I had them verified by an expert in NYC as being original Tiffany lamps. The base alone shows the most beautiful frond base I had ever seen. That moment was like being at The Antique Roadshow and getting a massive estimate of my treasure !!

    The Hotel Saskatchewan is a historic hotel, one of Canada's grand railway hotels located in downtown Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, overlooking Victoria Park. They must have commissioned these Tiffany lamps by 1925 to 1926 sometime as the hotel was opening in the fall of 1927 !
