Where are the Tiffany lamps made?
To our knowledge there is no Tiffany lighting factory in Europe, the cost of labor in the European Union would not sell a Tiffany lamp under five hundred euros or several thousand euros for the most complicated models is why our Tiffany lamps are made in China according to the method of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
In 1902, Louis Comfort Tiffany's company offered more than 300 lamp models, a mass production mode was installed, in order to produce in large quantities our factory in China applies the same manufacturing methods.
Whereas an old original Tiffany lamp can sell several hundred thousand euros (in 1985 a lamp is sold at auction for US $ 528,000), the price of a reproduction is an average of 100 to 200 €.
The stained glass windows are hand-made, the factory employs specially trained employees for the manufacture and assembly of hand-made glasses according to the method of Louis Comfort Tiffany, we follow and demand a perfect manufacturing finish.
The most elaborate stained-glass windows require hundreds of hours of work, a Tiffany lamp consists of several hundred pieces of stained glass, the pieces are set by a ribbon of copper assembled and then soldered with tin.
