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.
Tiffany desk lamps were made by hand. There was no mass-production involved in their creation. The designs were hand-drawn; all the glass was cut and soldered by hand. In fact, it's not even known how many Tiffany desk lamps or other types of lamps were made from each single design. Each pattern could be used an infinite number of times, but they did not keep records of how many were produced. This is part of the reason original Tiffany desk lamps and other original creations are so valuable, with one having gone for over 8 million dollars in a public sale.
In any case these lamps are desired the world over for their beautiful handcrafted designs and attention to detail. To get a measure of how desirable they are, two lamps sold at auction in 1998 for almost $2 million each!
