For nearly fifty years, Tiffany Studios produced the now-famous leaded glass lamps designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. First introduced in the early 20th century, Tiffany lamps have enjoyed continued popularity. With the glass of ancient Rome in mind, Louis Comfort Tiffany invented his trademark favrile glass technique. An example of Tiffany’s favrile glass is on display in the upcoming Furniture | Lights | Garden Decorative Arts sale, presented by Kamelot Auctions.
The auction also offers several carpets and tapestries. Particularly featured is a late 19th-century Arts & Crafts rug in the style of William Morris, an English designer, social activist, and writer. Morris’ designs became popular in the late Victorian era. He was also a pioneer of the Arts & Crafts movement. The available carpet has a Persian garden design and a leafy vine border. Also showcased is an Italian crystal chandelier from the 1880s. It features a six-arm iron frame decorated with cascading crystal. Decorative art, Asian art, and collectibles will be available as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Invaluable.
