The Most Expensive Lamp Ever Sold

If you are ever looking for a lamp to light up your front porch, read a book by, or to simply look pretty on that antique table, you should come into the Midtown Mercantile Merchants Mall at 4443 E. Speedway. We have a wide variety of lamps from antique to art deco to kitschy to mid century modern to funky!  Pictured here are some lamp examples … there just might be something similar in the mall right now.

The most expensive lamp in the world is the Pink Lotus sold at Christie’s Auction House in New York, on December 12, 1997 for $2.8 million. It is believed to be the only known example in existence.The Tiffany lotus lamp is made of bronze with a mosaic pattern of leaded stained glass. The shade is formed of eight lotus flowers which overlap to form this beautiful lamp. It is believed to have been made somewhere around 1905.
