Hi,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with this question. Are the shade and the base signed "Tiffany"?

Where would they be signed at exactly?
Antique Expert: Judith-on-Antiques, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 6 years ago
Signatures on shades are etched in. You should examine every inch of the glass with a magnifier to determine if it is signed. The base may also have an etched signature, near the bottom.

Sorry for the delay. I was out of town when you responded.

A signed Tiffany lamp in excellent condition has a current retail (replacement) price range of approximately $50,000 to $100,000. A Tiffany-style lamp in excllent conition, can sell for between $200 and $500.

In the condition you described, and visible in your picture, the current retail (replacement) value of the lamp, if it is signed, is approximately $10,000. If it is a Tiffany-type lamp in this condition, its value is approximately $100.
