  • This is the 1-cent Tiffany Lamp stamp, available as a Sheet of 20 stamps.

    In 2008, the United States Postal Service reissued the 1-cent definitive featuring artist Lou Nolan’s rendering of a Tiffany lamp. Nolan evokes the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933), a designer of glass, ceramics, jewelry, enamelware, and metalwork who transformed everyday objects into works of art.

    Tiffany’s stained-glass lampshades glow with soft, colorful light. Considered one of the greatest designers of glass in his era, Tiffany is also remembered as a leader in the art nouveau movement, a style in the visual arts that transformed design in the United States and Europe from the 1890s to World War I.

    Made in the USA.
