Can’t Pass Up A Tiffany Floor Lamp

Walking into my friend’s house is like walking into an antiques shop. It is full of old furniture and portraits of barons and baronesses from the nineteenth century. Most of her collection she inherited from her grandmother, who collected art, but she has added to the collection, piece by piece. She gets most of her items from an art dealer, but occasionally she would attend auctions and bid on works of art. She doesn’t like to do that too often because if she sees a piece she really likes, she gets carried away.

Last weekend I went with her to one of these art auctions. I’m the first to admit that I’m not the foremost expert on anything related to art, but it still confuses me how some people could spend thousands of dollars or more on something they’re just going to display in their house. I understand it’s an investment, but there are other things you could invest in that will net you more income than art. My friend ended up going over her budget while bidding on an original Tiffany floor lamp. She was happy she won the auction, but wasn’t too happy about the amount she spent.

Thanks For The Gift Idea, Louis Comfort Tiffany

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I have a good idea on what to get my girlfriend. Last year I got her some jewelry so this year I want to get her something different. I get her jewelry on all the major gift-giving holidays and her birthday so I think she’s expecting more of the same from me this year on Valentine’s Day. I want to surprise her in a good way this year.

My girlfriend studies art in college. She’s taken a liking to her art history class because it introduces her to some of the major artists from the past couple of centuries. She would come home and show me their works and talk about their influences and the meanings behind their masterpieces. So, for this Valentine’s Day I’m getting her a beautifully handcrafted stained glass lamp in the vain of the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany. I saw one in an antiques shop once and it really stood out to me. The colors were bright and vibrant and the design was one-of-a-kind. I know she will love it
