Results Our 17 December sale offered one of the most important collections of Tiffany lamps to appear at auction in over a decade. The group was led by two successively numbered “Wisteria” Table Lamps circa 1901–05 – an extraordinary, nearly-identical pair whose harmonious coloration suggests that they were cut from the same sheets of glass. The lamps sold to the same private American collector for $1,205,000 and $1,145,000 respectively. The private collection totaled $4.5 million, also including a “Dragonfly” Table Lamp circa 1910 that sold for $965,000.
