Tiffany Studios, NY - Double Student Oil Lamp

Considered a piece of American design history, the restoration of this lamp took particular attention and care. 

The original finish had been compromised by nearly a century of oxidation caused by improper care. So much so that the corrosion had begun to affect the substrate. 

Before restoration could begin, research and forensic metallic testing was done to ascertain the exact original trademark Tiffany finish. 

The end result was a complimenting combination of plating, polishing, controlled oxidizing, and hand relief. 

This was left un-lacquered as a "living finish", just as Tiffany Studios, NY had done originally.
