Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the best time to sell my Tiffany lamp?
    Now is the perfect time to consign a Tiffany lamp for our next auction. Sotheby’s 20th Century Design department offers decorative arts and design from the Arts and Crafts movement through Art Nouveau and Art Deco, to works from the post-war years and on through contemporary design. During the year, Sotheby's 20th Century Design sales are hosted online and in international selling locations. Once you consign a Tiffany work, our specialists will suggest the optimal location to sell a Tiffany lamp.
  • Why are Tiffany lamp designs so collectible?
    Original Tiffany lamp designs are highly desirable because each tells an individual story. An example is the Trumpet Creeper table lamp, estimated to fetch a hammer price near $1 million at Sotheby’s December 2018 auction, which sold for $2,295,000 USD. First made around 1903, the shape of the Trumpet Creeper shade mimics that of the coveted Wisteria and Grape table lamps which were introduced about the same time. However, the glass selection for the Trumpet Creeper required a great deal more time to perfectly coordinate its broad range of colors. Bring your Tiffany work to a Sotheby’s office for a valuation, or schedule an appointment with a 20th-Century Design specialist near you .
  • Must I submit the original documents or receipts that came with my Tiffany design?
    To determine an auction estimate for a fine or rare Tiffany table lamp, desk lamp, floor lamp or Tiffany chandelier, Sotheby’s experts will need detailed photographs and as much information as you can provide. Once you submit your Tiffany information online , you will be able to track the estimate process. A Sotheby’s specialist will contact you if there are any questions about your Tiffany design.
  • What are Sotheby’s commission fees?
    Sotheby’s sells fine, one-of-a-kind Tiffany design at auction. Likewise, our fees are customized for each work we offer. When you receive an auction estimate from a Sotheby’s specialist, it will include detailed information about our commission and fees.
