I am currently exploring the history of the Tiffany Lamps including the inspiration which led to its creation, the workers, the design of the lamps, the impact the lamps have had on history, and the changes that have taken place in Tiffany studios. Tiffany Studios is controversially believed to have stemmed from Tiffany and Co. which was the name of the company formed under Charles Lewis Tiffany. The invention of the Tiffany Lamps could be considered an evolution in design due to the fact that the previous conception of glass objects had originated from the Medieval Era. The popularity of Tiffany Studios inaugurated immediately after Thomas Edison’s electrical light bulb illuminated the lamps. Despite the studio’s popularity in the field of lamp formation through glass, Tiffany Studios performed in other matters such as windows, enamel and jewelry. The fame of Tiffany studios could also be attributed to the fact that production of its lamps began at a time when craftsmanship had become obsolete. Its success can thus be interpreted as the skills of its workers rather than its own formation.
