lamps are made by strictly using the old -fashioned technique and materials
of Tiffany- Studios New York.
technique is much different from the techniques used by today's Tiffany
hobbyist's and China/ Taiwan reproductions.
professionally construct Tiffany lamp shades using Tiffany´s long-lost
methods that we have rediscovered. This makes our products different from
those offered by our competitors.
are some reasons listed in the following why our lamps are looking like
the real thing:
single glass piece is exclusively cut to perfect fitting shape. No grinding
machines are used in our Studios.
glass pieces are framed with beeswaxed, hand cut copperfoil. They are soldered
together to a lamp shade on 360° fullsized lamp molds. These molds
are of exact Tiffany-Studios.NY shape and design.
-Before framing with copper foil and soldering there are all glass pieces selected on a layout of clear film on a large light table, just the way we could learn from hand down Tiffany fotographic documents of inside the Tiffany Studios:
This picture of Robert Koch's book:
"TIFFANY, REBEL IN GLASS"
shows a layout on a light table
at lower corner right hand side.
|-Upper and lower apertures of our lamp shades are equiped with solide bronze rings of exact measurements according to authentic Tiffany-Studios sizes. They are fitting on old lamp bases.|
