• LampsUSA only sells genuine tiffany GLASS shades. But even true
glass is sometimes mistaken for a plastic. Why? Because when you tap it
it sounds like plastic. In reality it has this sound because of the
construction technique. Art glass is poured out as a liquid into thin
sheets allowed to cool then cut into different sizes and shapes. Then
when the pieces of Art glass are totally encased in the copper bead, it
tends to dull the sound.
• The beauty of tiffany glass is in the multi-colored rainbow of
attractive glass panels. Be aware of the colors and try to match them
with your current décor. But remember, the whole point of having a
colorful tiffany lamp or tiffany light fixture is to add a burst of
color, so don’t be afraid to introduce new colors to your room.
• Consider using energy-saving CFL bulbs with your new tiffany shade.
CFL bulbs work great with tiffany since most users want a little
brighter, whiter light that will make the shade explode with color. And
since genuine glass panels are thick, you need lots of light to
penetrate these panels.
