Who Remembers the Tour de Tiffany?

The Quoizel Tour de Tiffany traveling show was an epic event!

Talk about Creating a Kaleidscope of Stained Glass…when an unassuming 80-foot trailer pulled up, the lighting store had hundreds of Tiffany styles at their fingertips!  Some accounts would have this sales event annually, and customers would be lined up before the store opened to be the first one to glance at an original Louis Comfort Tiffany.  Usually a scheduled 3-day event, it would be one of the biggest sales of the year, and would be promoted with a large advertising campaign and supported with much fanfare.  It was not uncommon to serve food and soft drinks to keep the consumers shopping.

It’s Throwback Thursday!

Recently, a consumer inquired about a one-of-kind Quoizel lamp he recently bought second-hand.

Although not much of a throwback, the uniqueness of this lamp, introduced in 2007, made it a contender for Throwback Thursday!

The Moonstone lamp was from the Salamander Glass Studio Collection.  The signed collectible featured a hand-blown art glass shade and base created by Todd Phillips, a skilled artisan. The metallic elements have an aged brass finish making this a real conversation piece.

What a great find!  No doubt it will be a cherished addition to the customer’s home for years to come!!

It’s Throwback Thursday!

This week we received an inquiry on a Tiffany lamp that a consumer bought second-hand.  The excited new owner wanted to know how old the lamp was and was thrilled to get more background on the piece.

The base, a medici bronze finish, and the shade were both featured in the 1997 Quoizel catalog.

A staple of stained glass that will forever be in style, this beautiful table lamp features an arrangement of art glass in soft pastels. The vintage bronze finish completes the look.

What a great find!  After 17 years of its initial introduction, the tiffany collectible still holds its value.
