Several years ago I brought a large hanging tiffany style lamp

Customer Question

Several years ago I brought a large hanging tiffany style lamp to the roadshow in Las Vegas to be appraised. The lamp had been purchased in1904 by a great aunt at the worlds fair in St. Louis. She willed the lamp to me in 1969. Now I want to sell the lamp. I took it to the Clars auction house in Oakland. The gentleman who appraised it at roadshow had opened a book that had a drawing of my lamp. He said it was made by the Bent glass co. in Connecticut. Clars has contacted me and said that they want more information about the lamp to verify its origin before they sell it. I received information from a gentleman who sells Tiffany lamps in Peoria Illinois that the book it might be found in is Paul Crist mosaic shades ii. I was hoping you might know if that might have been the reference you used. I understand that the Paul Crist book is very expensive and I cannot find one in a library. Any information you could give would be much appreciated. Thank you so much---Jody Newton
