Top Lots of a Sale:

The auction facilities masterworks from opposite a far-reaching array of techniques and forms constructed by Tiffany Studios. Highlights embody works before in a collection of a Louis C. Tiffany Garden Museum in Japan, such as a remarkably executed and rarely sculptural “Jack-in-the-Pulpit” finish vase and unusual “Fish” Mosaic Panel.  The sale’s preference of leaded potion lamps includes examples of Tiffany’s many iconic and rarely sought-after designs, including a glorious “Wisteria” Table Lamp, an “Arrowhead” Table Lamp with a singular “Cattail Pond Lily” Base, a singular “Trumpet Creeper” Chandelier, and an elaborate “Pebble” Table Lamp—a design that is also represented in a auction in a form of dual early “Pebble” panels.
