Tiffany desk lamps start with a pattern drawn on heavy cardboard or a board of some type. The designer labels each piece of glass and decides on the color, all before glass is even touched. Once the design is perfect, the glass is placed on top and carefully traced. Then the glass is cut, cleaned, joined together with copper foil--no other type of joining material--and soldered carefully in place. After a thorough cleaning, the reproduction Tiffany desk lamps shades are complete.
The light of the bridge lamp could be put by a chair or a desk and positioned so that the light would aim directly on the actual work or book that was being used. It was a very popular lamp for this purpose but also the antique bridge lamp became a favorite lamp to decorate the shade. With the shade hanging down, you were able to have a lot more freedom when it came to decorating.
The original creator of the lamps, was the eldest son of Charles Lewis Tiffany - the founder of the renowned jewelry company Tiffany and Co. Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) loved art and interior design and it became his mission to transform American interiors by providing superior decorative arts for use in the home which would be valued as much as the fine arts on the wall. In so doing he became one of the most well-known and influential interior designers of his time.
