Tiffany Studios Peony Lamp

I remember holding my first Tiffany Studios shade.  There is a certain weight and feel to it that after awhile you can tell it's just right.  There are many fakes on the market and even fakes that were put together with real Tiffany glass.  Provenance really matters in this market.  This is a nice example of a lamp that had stayed in the family since the day it was purchased as a wedding gift.  The patina on the base was untouched.  It was given a value of $40,000 to $60,000!
