The name Tiffany evokes images of diamonds and fine living, a combination of the glamour of a bygone age and a timeless devotion to quality taken to the heights of exclusivity. Founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany, then handed down to his son, Louis Comfort Tiffany, the Tiffany heritage is all that and more, seen and admired in a range of decorative products by generations of families that valued the beautiful and the unique in the very heart of their lives.
From New York and London to the fine houses of European royalty, there are products carrying the Tiffany name, proudly owned as heirlooms and passed on lovingly to new generations.
These collectors’ items from Tiffany & Co of New York set a benchmark for artistic excellence that remains unrivalled till today. Along with their value as art decor came the corresponding appreciation in investment value, as Tiffany’s pieces became sought after by the wealthy.
The credit is due to the leadership of Louis Comfort Tiffany whose Art Nouveau designs in the late 19th century led to the creation of many elegant and decorative products that graced homes in the USA and Europe, especially in the field of glass art.
Among those fine artifacts are Tiffany lamps – a range of lighting designs that have illuminated homes and palaces, and served as symbols of fine taste. Astutely led by Louis Comfort Tiffany, that range of glass lamps were truly works of art that, till today, draw admiration from all those who lay eyes on them.
