Dale Tiffany Review

Dale Tiffany Rating: Dale Tiffany led the Tiffany revival of the 80’s, so we have always thought of them as our leading vendor for tiffany lighting. I guess if you put tiffany in your name, you are showing your commitment to it ;-). We find their craftsmanship and attention to detail to be exceptional, which is especially important when dealing with tiffany glass. Dale uses hand-rolled glass and copper-foil assembly, keeping their production true to the method invented by Louis Comfort Tiffany over 100 years ago. Dale lamps may start with the same design, yet when one looks closely at each piece, no two lamps are exactly alike. Dale has a much larger tiffany variety than other companies, but that is to be expected. So for selection they are among the best you will find.

One thing you may not realize is that Dale tiffany creates the “Antique Roadshow” collection of lamps, plus a great line of crystal and acrylic lamps. In addition to tiffany glass, they also make some exceptional reverse-painted and Favrile hand blown glass items.
Insider Tip: When you unwrap your new tiffany light, you may notice an “oily coating” on the glass. Don’t panic. This is normal. The coating is used to protect the glass and cure the metal solder. You can simply wipe it off with a clean cloth prior to use.

Bonus Tip: Tiffany lamps are really “centerpiece” items that demand attention. Don’t try to match everything else in your décor. Your new lamp should stand on its own. It shouts “look at me” and maybe “yeah, I know I’m beautiful.”

Caution: The best way to purchase tiffany glass lamps or fixtures is IN PERSON. If you see the exact glass you are buying, you will not be surprised when you get it home. But even in the best showrooms, this is not very practical because they usually pull yours from a box in the back or they special order it. Since every tiffany glass piece is unique, there will be variation. It may sound trite, but the best way to look at tiffany is to consider each one a “work of art.” When you know ahead of time that the one you get will have its own unique beauty, then you can start to learn to love it, even if it is not exactly what you pictured ahead of time.

Bottom Line: You can be assured that Dale Tiffany products are some of the best in quality and design and they represent a good value. Most homes should have at least one tiffany lamp and you can be proud of pretty much any item from Dale. As centerpiece or complementary accents, the Dale Tiffany products complete the look of a room.
