Why do Tiffany lamps have dragonflies?

The inclusion of dragonflies in Tiffany lamps can be traced back to a moment of inspiration by Clara Driscoll, Tiffany's headlamp designer, during the summer of 1898. In the context of Art Nouveau, the dragonfly served as a leitmotif symbolizing the transformative connection between the human and the natural world.

How can you tell if a Tiffany lamp is real?

Distinguishing a genuine Tiffany lamp from a replica involves a few key indicators. Authentic Tiffany lamp shades typically exhibit a flowing, organic shape, whether in a globe or cone form. In contrast, counterfeit reproductions often appear more rigid in structure. Additionally, when examining motifs, look for botanical designs, geometric patterns, dragonflies, butterflies, peacock feathers, and spiders, as these were all favored designs in authentic Tiffany lamps.

What does a dragonfly pendant symbolize?
