Tiffany Reproduction Lamps – How To Know A Good Quality Lamp From A Bad One?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Original Tiffany lamps were made by Tiffany Studios New York, in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. These lamps are now antiques and can go for millions of US dollars. Because original Tiffany lamps are so incredibly expensive, (only the uber rich can afford them), and many people across the world have fallen for their elegance and beauty — Tiffany reproduction lamps were created. These lamps are made with a quality en par to that of original Tiffany lamps. Tiffany reproductions have given people all over the world the opportunity to own and admire a classic work of art. These lamps have now become so popular that they’re in a league of their own.

Tiffany reproduction lamps are exactly as described… reproductions of original Tiffany lamps. When I talk about Tiffany lamps, this is what I’m referring to. This article is about identify good quality Tiffany reproduction lamps.

Beware Of Imitations

There are many people out there exploiting the beauty of Tiffany lamps — not staying true to the construction and craftsmanship of original Tiffany lamps; in the sense they’re not following the original techniques to construct these lamps or using materials that meet the same standard of Tiffany Studios. Worst of all these people are those that produce lamps made out of plastic. And then go about calling these lamps Tiffany lamps! I find this shameful to the Tiffany lamp name… plastic lamps can’t emit light half as well as good quality art glass! And one of the reasons Louis C. Tiffany created Tiffany lamps was because he wanted the beauty of stained glass windows to be in the homes of every American, but these windows were terribly expensive, and so one way Tiffany thought he could add exquisite stained glass to your home was transferring the art of stained glass windows to lamps. That’s why I’m writing this article. Not only to make you aware of these Tiffany lamp imitations, but give you the knowledge to determine what’s a good quality Tiffany lamp, and what’s a bad quality lamp… so you don’t fall prey to Tiffany lamp imitations!

Plastic Lamps

The making of most Tiffany reproduction lamps use the same 100 year old technique (soldering 100`s of small pieces of colorful stained glass together) as original Tiffany lamps. Poor quality Tiffany lamps are made from pieces of colored plastic glued together… or made from poor quality glass.

There are many people producing and selling plastic Tiffany lamps. In my opinion — and I’m sure other Tiffany lamp owners and collectors will agree — are of inferior quality. This is why when you go to buy a Tiffany lamp, you should make sure that the materials used are of high quality (both base and shade). The glass should be good quality art glass… not plastic. Please do not be fooled by these cheap plastic imitation lamps, as some of the sellers of these lamps are trying to pass them off as good quality Tiffany lamps. Poor quality Tiffany lamps are much cheaper than authentic Tiffany reproduction lamps.

How Tiffany Lamps Are made… A brief Overview

For you to be able to identify a good Tiffany lamp from a bad one, you need to have knowledge on how Tiffany lamps are made. All decent Tiffany lamps are not made by machinery, but hand made works of art. The shade of a Tiffany lamp is constructed from hand cut, polished and shaped pieces of stained art glass. Once all the pieces are cut, copper foil is wrapped around each individual piece (can you image how long that would take for a shade made out of 1000 pieces?). These copper wrapped glass pieces are then soldered together with lead.

An Important Bit!

I must stress here, that when you look at a Tiffany shade close up, you may see some bubble, seeds (tiny bubbles) or lines in the stained glass. Do not be alarmed by this! These are not defects. They’re features of the lamp and add character to the lamp… they simply reflect the nature and beauty of real stained art glass!

One of the great, and unique features about a Tiffany lamp is that no two Tiffany lamps are identical. Why? Because the glass in these lamps aren’t plain ordinary glass… it’s high quality hand rolled art glass, and only the best pieces of glass — with the right hues and texture — are used for the Tiffany shade. This… combined with the characteristic qualities of the seeds and lines mean there’s and infinite subtle variation of any one Tiffany lamp of the same shade, size and theme. No wonder Tiffany lamps are so special and a true one-of-a-kind lamp!

How To Identify Good Quality Glass

Good Tiffany lamps are made of colorful glass of intense color. These Tiffany lamps are vibrant pieces of decorative art, that would catch the corner of your eye — even in a room that’s lit by bright summer light pouring through the window pane. This is true even if the lamp is not even lit! This shows the quality and intensity of colors in a good quality lamp. Poor quality Tiffany lamp glass will be the opposite, the color of the glass will be washed out, the shade will appear dull and flat. This lamp would not out shine a sun lit room on a hot summers day.

A Good Quality Base

Good high-end Tiffany lamps use bronze bases… whilst lower quality Tiffany lamps aren’t made out of such high quality material, but have bronze finished bases made of zinc alloy. Try to stay away from this type! Another type of base that’s good quality is a base made out of mahogany. A good quality base will last you for years… and your grandchildren too!

The Price

The price range of good quality Tiffany lamps vary. The more intricate the design of the lamp, the greater the price will be… due to the amount of effort a glass lamp artist has to undertake to implement an intricate design — compared with a simpler one. Also. The more panels and colors a Tiffany lamp has, the more costly it is.

The Good… The Bad… And The Plain Old Ugly!

Here’s a quick overview of what to look for in a good & bad Tiffany lamp.

The Glass

Bad Lamps

o Use low quality glass which looks rough and lacks brilliance

o They need a good light bulb to illuminate the artistic patterns

o The colors are not well arranged in these lamps

o They’re inconsistent nature of the low-end glass makes it difficult to find the exact color variations

Good Lamps

o Use high quality stained glass.

o They shine even when the light bulb is not lit

o You can see the patterns clearly all the way through

o The texture of art glass is smooth

o The colors are vibrant and well balanced thus bringing their themes to life

Ugly Lamps

o Have plastic as a substitute to glass. (Sorry… I don’t mean to offend anyone here, but in my opinion, these lamps should never be produced!)

The Solder

Bad Lamps

o The solder is inconsistent

o Solder is thick at some places and thin at other places… indication of poor craftsman ship

Good Lamps

o Finely drawn

o Even and well polished

o Firm and usually plump

o Supporting the glass artwork and holding the shades tight

In summary:

Good Tiffany style lamps have a smooth and even solder lines separating the glass pieces. Bad Tiffany lamps have a rough and uneven solder lines — if you’re not careful… the solder lines may even cut your fingers!

Is a Fruit Lamp A Tiffany Lamp?

To put it bluntly… fruit lamps being called Tiffany lamps is a huge insult to the late Louise C. Tiffany and anyone in the Tiffany lamp business! Not every stained glass lamp you see is a Tiffany lamp, and a fruit lamp is one of them. So why, you may be thinking, is a fruit lamp not a Tiffany lamp? Well you’re in luck. After you’ve finished reading this you’ll know exactly how to identify what’s a Tiffany lamp, and what is NOT a Tiffany lamp.

Some of the main differences between Tiffany lamps and fruit lamps are:

o A single Tiffany lamp may has between 300-2000 glass pieces whereas a fruit lamp may have about 100 or so.

o Tiffany lamps are made from good quality art glass, which mean they have very deep rich colors, the glass offers a three dimensional effect… effectively making the theme on the glass shade spring to life. Whereas a fruit lamp appears flat and two dimensional. It looks dull and dingy. There’s no life to the fruit on these shades — the glass used on these fruit lamps adds no beauty to the lamps at all. These fruit lamps aren’t elegant like a Tiffany lamp. They’re coarse and dreary.

o Tiffany lamps are very expensive… they can go from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars whereas fruit lamps are not expensive and can be bought almost anywhere.

So. Hopefully, now you won’t be fooled by the cheap stained glass lamps portraying as Tiffany lamps. If there’s one way you want to add a touch of beauty to your home… then you can’t go wrong with an exquisite Tiffany lamp. It’ll stand the test of time for generations to come.

Reusable Bags More Eco-Friendly Than Paper Bags

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

You’ve probably heard a lot of fuss about plastic bags lately and how they’re bad for the environment and you shouldn’t be using them anymore.  Perhaps paper bags are a better alternative, right?  Wrong.  Although paper bags degrade more easily than plastic bags, they are not a better choice than plastic bags when it comes to environmental consequences. 

In 2006, the EPA released a report that claimed that paper accounts for over 30 percent of municipal solid waste in the US.  Over 10 billion paper bags are consumed in the US each year which represents about 14 million tress that are harvested for their production.  In a separate report released by the Film and Bag Federation, they claimed that paper bags require 40 percent more energy to produce than plastic bags, create 80 percent more waste, emit 70 percent more atmospheric pollution, and are responsible for 94 percent more waterborne wastes.  These are not good numbers. 

These numbers essentially tell us that the amount of energy consumed and pollution generated by paper bags prevent paper bags from becoming a realistically viable alternative to plastic bags.  So where does that leave us?  Plastic bags are bad, and paper bags are even worse, so what are you supposed to do? 

Use reusable shopping bags.  Reusable bags are the only truly viable alternative to paper and plastic bags.  Their viability lies in the fact that they are not one-use bags.  The more they are used, the more they benefit the environment.  True, they require energy to produce and in the end must be discarded and thrown away.  However, the useful life of a reusable bag is much, much longer than a disposable paper or plastic bag, usually a couple years.  Thus the overall environmental impact of the reusable bags is lessened each time the bag is used.

Choosing the Best Wine Making Yeast

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Wine making yeast is an essential ingredient for any kind of wine, whether you are making wine for a large estate that produces commercial wine (which of course you would only do if you were suitably trained) or making your own wine at home. For this reason it is essential to choose good-quality yeast that will do the job.

So what exactly is the job that yeast has to do?

In two short words, it makes alcohol . And it is alcohol that makes the difference between wine and ordinary grape juice.

Yeast and wine making

To make wine, we need to combine grapes (in some form or other) with sugar, water and yeast – sometimes with the addition of other ingredients. The sugar and yeast react and that's when fermentation starts to take place, and the whole mix begins to look like a frothy witch's brew. It's quite a strange process because it also makes the sugar less sweet. That is why any type of wine, sweet, semi-sweet, dry or extra-dry (brut) needs sugar to make it. On average, you are going to need about 2 lbs of sugar for every gallon of wine you produce – and that will end up with a wine that has an alcohol content of around 10 percent.

If you look around for yeast you will quickly see that there are different types of yeast for different applications. Even though most come from one particular species, Saccharomyces cerevisiae , manufacturers use the same species to make yeast for brewing beer, making whiskey, bread and for other purposes as well. Just be warned that you can't use yeast produced for making bread, beer or anything else to make wine!

So it isn't just a matter of going to your local supermarket and asking for "yeast". It really does need to be the right type, and it also need to be a decent quality. If it isn't, then you have no chance of producing a good, drinkable house wine. You might as well go a bottle of the shelf.

Dry versus wet

Most people tend to use dried yeast for wine making, but you can also use liquid yeast. It does the same job but more quickly, and many people will say a lot more efficiently.

If you buy a wine making kit you will usually get dry yeast. That isn't a train smash. All you will need to do is to activate the yeast yourself in warm water before you add it to the water, sugar and grape mix.

If you are serious (or get serious) about making wine, then you will soon find which type of wine yeast works best for you.

Combining Vases and Mini Lights for Spectacular Results

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Vases are one of those containers that aren't used every day but simply beg to be used for some purpose when they're not holding flowers. Glass and crystal vases are perfect vessels for creating new and interesting centerpieces or as accessories in a room.

Combine vases with lights and you'll instantly have an eye-catching display! How can you transform your ordinary vases into something extraordinary? Try out some of these decorating ideas and you'll have your friends and family chattering away at how clever you are at decorating.

Ideas for Vases with Mini Lights

Fill an inexpensive vase – find one at the dollar store – with ornaments and lights. Begin by placing a few Christmas ornaments into the bottom of the vase. Alternately push a string of lights down inside the vase and continue to fill the vase with lights and ornaments so the lights will illuminate the bulbs.

This is a perfect centerpiece idea for any holiday table. Or use it to spruce up a lonely corner of a sideboard, buffet, or countertop. Group a few vases with lights together for an interesting accent. Make it even more aesthetically pleasing by varying the sizes and shapes of the vases.

(Be sure not to leave your vase projects unattended or left on overnight. Traditional mini lights do heat up so protect delicate wood surfaces.)

Vases in the fireplace – rainy summer nights can seem dreary at times, so why not make them a bit more cheery with lights? The fireplace is likely sitting empty and looking a bit cold now that winter is over, so let's fill it with some vases and lights to make it more inviting.

Push strings of your favorite colors of lights into glass or crystal vases until the vase is full. Do this with several sizes of vases. Fill the opening of your fireplace with the vases filled with lights. Plug them into a multiple outlet extension core and voila – instant charm and ambiance in your space! This is an easy fix to enhance and beautify that gaping hole during the spring and summer months.

Accessories – battery operated white lights are perfect for filling vases and creating unique accessories for any room of the home. Tuck the battery pack into glass beads in the bottom of the vase and allow the string of lights to randomly fill the vase. You can easily accessorize the fireplace mantel, a bookshelf, bathroom sink, foyer, or bedroom with these beauties. New micro dot LED battery lights last up to 100 hours per set of batteries.

Fill it and light it up – similar to the Christmas ornament idea, you can fill the vase with just about anything that would look pretty along with the lights inside. Glass beads, shells from the beach, river rocks, small toys, costume jewelry, sleigh bells, artificial flower petals, spools of thread, or any other small item that would match or compliment the decor of the room in which the vase would be placed . (Again, keep in mind good safely precautions when using different materials keeping in mind that incandescent mini lights do heat up. Do not leave lights on overnight, unattended and protect delicate surfaces like wood.)

Consider using colored glass vases too for a new and unique twist on adding color to a room. A red vase with red or white Christmas lights would be really pretty during Valentine's Day or Christmas. A green vase with green or white lights would brighten any powder room or bedroom decorated in green hues. Thrill your daughter with a frosted vase filled with purple lights for her bedroom. There's really no end to what you can do with vases and lights!
