--OF COURSE IT IS NOT-- We still do not know about the lamp but more importantly, we do know that the seller is a fake. Ebay finally woke up and realized what was happening here and this seller has been disconnected. 7 bids were placed and hopefully the seller did not make a deal off Ebay.

 They have used at least 30 different names, usually with a 0 rating and always with a fake Tiffany lamp and they can be found on almost every page of TiffanyFakes.Com. It had 5 bids (now there is only 1) up to $10,000 but of course, the names of the bidders are kept PRIVATE. Most likely they are shills and if it runs the normal course, they will try and sell off Ebay. No guarantee in the listing and no PayPal. Ask about an escrow sale. Ask to see the base signature and if you get a photo, e mail it to us.
News-Ebay took 3 days but this seller is No Longer A Registered User. Way to go Ebay.

CHECK OUT THIS SCAM

The lamp shown on the left is currently listed on Ebay by a brand new seller named CHARSUTHERLAND who has been on Ebay for 3 days. No photos of the base signature and no photos of the shade signature. When the telephone number for this seller is dialed, guess what? Why would anyone bid on a Tiffany lamp from a 0 rated seller? This lamp is familiar as it was offered many times from the group out of Atlanta and it is possible that they are offering it again or maybe the photos were stolen from those thieves. Pay attention and you will not get robbed.

LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES

Just when you think you have seen it all, up pops seller MRHANOVR from Patterson, New York with his special twist on selling Tiffany. He listed a Tiffany lamp and shade on Ebay for $99,000 which should have been the first clue. The listing told of a Tiffany Studios tulip lamp and base. Early on it was determined that the shade was a fake and several e mails that were sent to the seller were forwarded to TiffanyFakes.Com and they told of replies from the seller stating that it" had been in his family for over 40 years and was purchased from a well known and very knowledgeable dealer in New York City". The next thing to happen was another revision to the listing that changes it to a Tiffany Iris shade and an "unknown base" with a starting price of only $49,999 this time. The third revision made it out to be just a plain old iris lamp and bronze base with no mention of Tiffany at all in the title. All of these revisions took place within 3 days. In the last revision he admits that " the tag was added later, however it was a period glass lamp made by another designer and not sure the base is original to the lamp". When asked to verify the purchase in New York City the seller answered "as I really knew nothing about the lamp as far as being real, I was just looking for information through other collectors by trolling the lamp on Ebay". Just makes you want to do business with this seller over and over again.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

On the left is the real thing with a Buy It Now price of $535. On the right is a reproduction sphinx with a fake patina, no quality workmanship and offered by a seller who has graced our pages before with other fakes and it has a Buy It Now price of $750

 This seller calls anything with brass or glass as Tiffany but admits that they are unable to locate a signature. Most likely that is because they are not Tiffany items. They are not guaranteed to be Tiffany but are guaranteed to be old and original. He also uses the PRIVATE feature and before you make a bid on one of his fakes, you should check out his 35 negatives or his almost 60 neutrals in just the past 12 months. A frequent contributor to this site and two of their latest are shown below.

"EXPERIMENTAL"

Tiffany used an "X" to mark glass pieces that were determined to be experimental but it is very doubtful that all of the "X" marked pieces appearing now are genuine. Be very careful when bidding on or buying any of these pieces.
