The Pink Lotus Lamp: The Most Expensive Lamp in the World
It is common knowledge that Tiffany lamps are highly sought after and renowned for their beauty, but did you know that the most expensive lamp in the world is a Tiffany lamp?
The eye-catching Pink Lotus lamp was sold in December 1997 at Christie’s Auction House in New York for a staggering $2.8 million!
The ‘Lotus’ lamp pictured below is made from bronze and has a signature leaded stained glass shade. It also features 12 separate light bulbs and 8 fragile glass globes. The shade is made up of 2,000 hand-crafted glass pieces which come together to form eight beautiful, overlapping lotus flowers in mottled reds, pinks, oranges and yellows.
It would certainly make a very fetching centrepiece in any living room!
The Pink Lotus lamp was created by Tiffany Studios in 1906. At this time the price of a Tiffany lamp was usually somewhere between $30 and $750, as they grew in popularity so did the price. In later years some of the lamps produced by Tiffany Studios fetched millions of dollars, although none have ever topped the price paid for the stunning Pink Lotus lamp.
