Cottone Auctions held a Fine Art & Antiques sale on March 19, 2022. Included in the sale were 17 Tiffany Studios leaded and Favrile glass lamps. Following is a review of the top three results of these lamps.
The top lot of the group was an 18″ diameter Peony table lamp with beautiful red, pink and magenta flowers. It sold for $126,000, including buyer’s premium, against an estimate of $60,000 – $80,000.
The next lot, #127, was a 20″ diameter red Poppy table lamp. Intense red flowers are very desirable, so it was no surprise that it achieved the second best result with a sale price of $93,600, including buyer’s premium, against an estimate of $50,000 – $80,000. It would have sold for more if it had had a more important base.
The third best result went to a 20″ diameter Arrowroot table lamp. It sold for $78,000, including buyer’s premium. I don’t know the estimate because it must have been a late addition to the sale that wasn’t published in their brochure. The price was strong because the colors were exceptional; very few examples have blue in the background.
