Let There Be Light
On December 18, 2008 at Sotheby's auction rooms in New York city, this Tiffany lamp was offered. The inscription on the lamps base reads :
36 Holes Gross Score
The Tiffany Studios
Joseph P. Knapp
When The Hammer Came Down Ten Days Ago, The Auctioneer Said ,
"Sold For Forty Six Thousand , Eight Hundred and Seventy Five Dollars"
This Lamp, Which May Of Been In The Knapp Family For A Few Weeks Shy Of 100 Years, Has Now Passed On To A Collector . I Wonder What J. P. Would Of Thought About That ? And I Wonder If The New Owner Knows Or Cares To Know Anything About The Man Who First Turned On This Lamps Light?
