1. What is the difference between Tiffany lamps, Tiffany style lamps, stained glass lamps, reproduction Tiffany lamps, and original Tiffany lamps?
Tiffany lamps can mean many things, but most commonly it is the general term for Tiffany style lamps, Tiffany reproduction lamps, and the original Tiffany lamps made by the Tiffany Studios, New York. Original Tiffany lamps are made by the Tiffany Studios New York in late 1800's and early 1900's (for more information, please click here). Tiffany reproduction lamps are reproductions of the original Tiffany lamps. Tiffany style lamps are stained glass lamps inspired by the original Tiffany lamps and other stained glass and Art Nouveau subjects. Stained glass lamps are lamps which shades are made of stained glass (many pieces soldered together). Some stained glass lamps have stained glass bases as well.

2. Are you selling original Tiffay lamps, reproduction Tiffany lamps, or Tiffany style lamps?
We sell heirloom-quality reproduction Tiffany lamps and Tiffany style stained glass lamps. We do not sell original Tiffany lamps made by the Tiffany Studio, New York.

3. Where can I find information about original Tiffany lamps and about Louis Comfort Tiffany?
Our web site www.TiffanyDirect.com has rich information about original Tiffany lamps and about Louis Comfort Tiffany. Please click here for more details.

4. Are the methods and techniques different in the making of Tiffany style lamps, Tiffany reproduction lamps, and the original Tiffany lamps?
The making of most Tiffany style lamps and reproduction Tiffany lamps follow the tradition of the original Tiffany lamps, by soldering many (often hundreds) of counts of colorful stained glass together. However, please be aware that a small number of Tiffany lamps are made of plastics with glue, or entire glass shades from the mold. These kinds of lamps actually can NOT be called Tiffany lamps, and they have much less value than true Tiffany lamps.

5. How much do the Tiffany lamps cost?
The cost of a Tiffany lamp varies. The original Tiffany lamps can go anywhere from a few thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many of the original Tiffany lamps are in private collection and in museums. Vendors of the Tiffany style lamps and Tiffany reproduction lamps usually ask for a few hundred for their lamps. At TiffanyDirect.com, the same quality Tiffany lamps that sell for a few hundred dollars on the market can be bought for less than a hundred dollars, giving you tremendous savings on these beautiful premium art works.

8. What materials do you use in your Tiffany lamps?
We use the very fine stained glass in the shades of the Tiffany lamps, and zinc alloy in the bases of the Tiffany lamps.

9. What do I need to know about the bulbs of Tiffany lamps?
Tiffany style lamps normally have unique bases and sockets. For the most common types of Tiffany lamps, i.e, those with 16" diameter lamp shades up to 20" diameter lamp shades, two (2) 60 watt sockets are generally recommended, although in some cases three (3) sockets and/or higher voltage bulbs are used as well. For Tiffany lamps with larger size lamp shades, three (3) sockets are generally recommended. For Tiffany lamps with smaller size lamp shades, one (1) socket with regular bulb is generally used. Some times, intermediate size sockets and bulbs are used for the smaller Tiffany lamps.

10. Are your hanging Tiffany lamps swag lamps or are they hard wired?
Our hanging Tiffany lamps are hard-wired and come with a ceiling cap. However, you can easily convert them to swag lamps by extending the chain and cord.

11. How do you stand by your Tiffany lamp products?
