They talk about the beginnings to when it had fallen out of favor in the 1930s to the 1960s. They discuss Lillian Nassau’s role in bringing the collectability back and what the market is like today. They also touch on art glass such as Loetz, Durand, Quezal, Steuben, Ludberg and more.

    Great podcast and good points made about the Tiffany glass. I do think it’s going to continue to hold value especially the fine examples of favrile glass. That detail about the signatures was fascinating, now I want to run my finger over a Tiffany signature and a fake to see if I can feel a difference!

    I have a small glass piece signed and numbered Quezal(ScriptL) L314, Beautiful iridescent, looks like a small pinch pot. Curious as to when it may have been produced and possible value? And also some feather drawn patterned iridescent cyldrical lamp shades, unsigned, still in use on sideboard lamps we have replaced cords on metal bases. Mom thought they were Tiffany and someone else thought they were Durand. How may we know for certain?
    I enjoyed listening to the podcast and appreciate any information on my pieces.
    Thank you.
