Stiffel lamps have a long history and a reputation for being quality designed lamps and highly prized additions to homes throughout America and Canada.
The lamps were sold in department stores and specialty shops. In 1932, Chicago artist and designer Ted Stiffel founded the Stiffel Lamp Company producing his unique pewter, brass and bronze lamps as well as a few stained glass designs.
A Stiffel lamp has a rare quality that transcends the strictly utilitarian and goes beyond the merely decorative.
The purchase of a Stiffel lamp is one of the finest investments you could make for your home.
