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.
Earlier, when we used to talk about a bankers lamp, it straight away referred to plain and simple desk lamps which were meant for people who used them for late night work. But now things have changed. People, who want to choose a bit of sophistication along with some versatility, think of buying a bankers lamp.
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.
