  • Domed Magnets - Louis C. Tiffany Lamps

Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows. Starting in 1898 the artist adapted his method of making windows to the production of artful lampshades, frequently inspired by natural motifs. Although his craftsmen used patterns, each lampshade was unique due to the selection of the individual pieces of glass. These vibrant domed magnets feature lampshades from the collection of the New-York Historical Society Museum.


Produced in cooperation with the New-York Historical Society Museum.

A master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) was one of America’s most noted decorative artists at the turn of the century. Son of the founder of Tiffany & Co. of New York, he began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating innovative types of opalescent glass that radiated deep, vibrant hues. Using variations in colour and thickness of glass, he achieved pictorial effects of unsurpassed subtlety and beauty.
