Tiffany lamp shades are constructed by skilled glass cutters who spend years perfecting their craft and artwork. The lamp shades are constructed by cutting patterns into glass and then fitting the glass back together with copper foil. Due to the rising costs of copper, only very skilled manufacturers still use it. True copper foil lamp shades are more expensive than those made with alternative materials. However, just because a Tiffany style lamp shade is made with an alternative material does not necessarily make it bad. Alternative materials are usually used to make the lamp shades more affordable. Whatever the case may be, make sure you know what materials are being used in the lamp shade. The allure of using copper foil stems from its use in original Tiffany Studios lamp shades. These lamp shades were constructed by the creators of Tiffany glass and the inventor of the Tiffany lamp shade, Clara Driscoll. Louis Comfort Tiffany and Clara Driscoll were the orginal designers of Tiffany glass lamp shades. They held very high standards for glass cutting and glass selection than many prominent designers hold true today.

 

Selecting a proper glass lamp shade can be difficult. There are many varieties to choose from and designs can range wildly. Generally speaking, most glass lamp shades will work with a conventional lamp, however it is a good idea to check the dimensions and of course, read the reviews, to find out if anyone has had trouble with a particular shade or lamp. All Tiffany glass lamp shades generally fall into seven categories. The easiest way to tell which category your lamp shade falls into, is to look at the shape. Some lamp shades contain irregular borders at the top and bottom of the shade. The glass lamp shades in these designs will generally have a vase, or rounded shape to them and end with an irregular bottom or top, or both! These are one of the more popular categories of lamp shades as they come in many different patterns and colors. The shape of an irregular border lamp shade is considered to have a nostalgic appearance, as many original Tiffany Studios lamps were made in this category.
