Of all lamps created by the Tiffany Studios the 'Wisteria' Table Lamps hold special allure. Tiffany's lamps were the height of fashion around the turn of the twentieth century and were sought after by the most powerful families in America. During the Depression with the shift of taste from the craftsmanship to machine-age aesthetic, these lamps fell out of favor; the public was seeking for affordable objects of simplicity and came to consider the ornate Tiffany's lamps decadent and passe. The interest in the lamps start growing in the last 70s and they are now being sought after by collectors worldwide. In the recent design sale, Sotheby's offered an important private collection of Tiffany lamps, which was led by two successively numbered 'Wisteria' Table Lamps created between 1901 and 1905. Both were sold to the same private American collector for $1,205,000 and $1,145,000 respectively.
