Tiffany Studios was a glassmaking company established by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1885. The studio created multi-colored, textured, opalescent stained glass, primarily used for windows and lamps. In 1893, Tiffany Glass Furnaces was built in Queens, NY, creating a type of blown glass, called Favrile. This glass was used in the construction of all Tiffany Studios designs.
One of the first lamps designed by the company was exhibited at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. In 1894, the company trademarked Favrile to prevent other studios from copying the design. Clara Driscoll was the designer that created each of the designs for Tiffany lamps, though it was originally thought that Louis Comfort Tiffany created the designs himself. Tiffany Studios closed in 1930, just before the death of its founder in 1933. Today, Tiffany Lamps creates reproduction lamps based off the old designs from Tiffany Studios. In 2006, a major exhibition of the work of Tiffany Studios opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
