Tiffany Studio: lamps at Queens Museum, NY (The Neustadt Collection)

image-197In my 2017 trip to the USA, I made a stop to admire the The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany lamps, at the Queens Museum, in New York. The collection, assembled by Dr. Egon Neustadt (1898-1984) and his wife Hildegard (1911-1961), features a number of delightful copper foil lamps created by Tiffany Studios right in Queens (in Corona to be exact).


In this post you can admire some of the wonderful lamps in the collection.



The lamp above, is an example of a Wisteria lamp (1901 circa) – original Tiffany glass lamps like this sells at auction for between $350,000 and $1.5m (USD).

The lamp below instead is the Apple Blossom design (1905 circa).


Another well celebrated tiffany design for a lamp is the Pond Lilly below (1905 circa) — the one at the Queens Museum is one of the only six pieces known to exist.



Another great Tiffany design (although the design itself is probably attributed to Clara Driscoll) is the Dragonfly lamp below (1910 circa).



The collection also includes a set of glass jewels and tiles produced in Tiffany’s furnaces in Corona between 1890 and 1920.


Next, you can see few images of other lamps in the collection.
