Tiffany Studios windows lead the way at Christie’s Tiffany sale, May 26, 2021

Christie’s New York held a Tiffany sale on May 26, 2021, including windows, lamps and accessories, with gross sales of $3,903,975. The windows led the charge with outstanding results. Following are three of them.

Tiffany Studios scenic window with flowers, Christie’s lot #114

Lot #114 was a magnificent, signed, 27″ x 48″ scenic window from 1915, when Tiffany Studios was at the height of its prowess. Estimated to sell for $600,000 – $800,000, it realized $1,470,000, including buyer’s premium. I spoke to the underbidder who was kicking himself that he hadn’t bid more. Another window, lot #126, also greatly exceeded its estimate of $30,000 – $50,000, realizing $281,250, including buyer’s premium. They were the top two lots of the sale.

Tiffany Studios Pond Lily table lamp, Christie’s lot #104

The top lamp of the sale was lot #104, a lovely 20″ diameter Pond Lily model on a Twisted Vine base. It exceeded its high estimate of $150,000, realizing $200,000, including buyer’s premium.

Tiffany chandelier on the left, Christie’s lot #122

The fourth best lot in the sale, #122, was a chandelier. It sold for almost double its high estimate of $80,000, realizing $150,000, including buyer’s premium. What the buyer may not have been aware of was the missing parts (shown above on the right).
