Description - Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models by Alastair Duncan
Comprehensive and beautifully illustrated, this expanded edition of Tiffany Lamps and Metalware presents an inexhaustible selection of items manufactured by Tiffany Studios over more than thirty years of uninterrupted production. As Tiffany Studios never published an official catalogue raisonne, this book is the closest one can come to a record of their prolific output. Endless in its variety, this book is the ultimate pictorial reference work. Vibrantly coloured table and floor lamps, chandeliers and sconces, as well as Tiffany's famous leaded lampshades are represented here. The book also features numerous metalware items, from inkstands and candlesticks to book ends, tea screens, clocks and tobacco jars. An index cross-references the firms' original model numbers and sales descriptions to the illustrations, further enabling identification. Updated and reorganised, this latest edition of Tiffany Lamps and Metalware is an accessible and functional guide to Tiffany's wide-spanning oeuvre.
