News-Antique.com - Nov 19,2007 - DAVID DONALDSON ANTIQUES is dedicated to the sales of TIFFANY FAVRILE Lamps, Glass, Pottery, Quezal, Steuben, Durand, Galle, Handel, Duffner, and Other fine makers; as well as advising collectors on the purchase of authentic Tiffany Favrile works of art produced by Louis C. Tiffany and the Tiffany Studios. During the past 33+ years I have worked for the Corning Museum of Glass( assistant Curator ), and the Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Fla.( Curator and Conservator of the Collection ) - home to one of the world's premiere collections of Tiffany Glass, which includes many pieces from Tiffany's personal collection and home. During my museum career, I have observed numerous occasions where individuals have been led to believe that what they were buying was an authentic original Tiffany work, only to later discover that they had purchased an altered piece or a fake.
In addition to direct purchase, having a "antique Tiffany" piece independently authenticated during the purchasing process provides reassurance, and may save a great deal of disappointment and financial loss. To this end, and for the past 29 years, I have advised serious collectors as to the authenticity of fine "Favrile" objects by the Tiffany Studios, as well as other fine antique art glass, lamps, windows and decorative items by makers including Steuben, Quezal, and Durand. A fee schedule for authentication services is available upon request.
