Tiffany 'Dragonfly' glass lamp leads $1.9m New York Art & Design auction

This Tiffany 'Dragonfly' leaded glass and gilt-bronze table lamp was the star lot at Christie's auction

A 20th Century Decorative Art & Design auction in New York, this week (March 8), saw another sale victory for the renowned glassware company Tiffany & Co. A Tiffany Studios 'Dragonfly' leaded glass and gilt-bronze table lamp lead the auction, bringing $92,500.

The rare Tiffany lamp dates to circa 1910 and measures 25 inches in height. The lamp's base is stamped "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 6092".

According to auctioneer Christie's, the lamp was sold by a private New York collector and exceeded its $70,000-90,000 presale estimate. The lamp was previously part of the noted estate of Julius Reiner in New York.

The circa 1910 Tiffany lamp's lucky winning bidder is a US trader. So maybe this lamp will re-emerge for sale in the not-too-distant future.

Christie's New York sale brought $1,998,063 overall, with 78% sold by lot and $91% sold by value.

Other highlights included a Tiffany Studios 'Peony' Leaded Glass and Bronze Table Lamp, circa 1910, which also sold for $92,500 (within its $80,000-120,000 estimate) to a US private buyer.
