Louis Comfort Tiffany was the creator of Tiffany art glass. Tiffany began creating beautiful art glass objects during the turn of the 20th century. They were very well known for creating spectacular stained glass windows and lamps. Over the years they made many other types of art glass items including bowls, glasses, vases, frames, vases, decanters and much more. Tiffany glass is usually multicolored or iridescent. The color may even look to be metallic.
Tiffany art glass may be signed in many different ways. Tiffany art glass may say Favrile, LCT, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Tiffany or Tiffany Studios. Tiffany items may be marked by one of these examples or a combination of them. Due to the iridescent color, the signature may be difficult to see. On the lamps the signature can be found on base and/or on rim of shade.
The value of Tiffany art glass items depends on many things. The earlier pieces are harder to find. The Favrile and Tiffany Studios signed glass brings a great deal of money. The larger Lamps and stained glass windows are extremely hard to find and also bring a good amount of money. Tiffany art glass is very delicate.
