Tiffany Lamps - A Timeless Treasure

Among the varied accomplishments of it's inventor, the lamp was among Louis Comfort Tiffany's least favorite. The brilliant artist and cunning businessman took far greater pride in his work in areas such as interior design, painting, stained glass creations, and even ceramics. Because Tiffany's lamps were mass-produced, they failed to give him the same pride as his many other artistic endeavors. However, despite his lack of satisfaction, it is the Tiffany lamp which has endured the test of time and has become the symbol of his stunning vision and creativity.

Tiffany Lamp Background

Following a great many years of experimentation and tinkering, Tiffany patented his unique opalescent glass and named it "Favrile" in 1894. The artisan had found a new process to make and utilize what had previously been referred to as "art glass" and to apply it to household products. By 1895, Tiffany lighting was born after he began using his "Favrile" glass in lampshades. For the next decade or so, Tiffany Studios produced a wide array of styles and designs which numbered over 300 by 1906. Some of his most recognizable designs include the Wisteria and Hanginghead Dragonfly Lamp, which to this day, are the most sought after designs.

Part of the allure and initial popularity of Tiffany lamps was their ability to soften the effects of incandescent lighting upon rooms thus creating a more natural lighting effect. Much as his stained glass windows had done for churches and other patrons, his lamps produced a visual but functional piece of art that was available to just about anyone. Compared with the other choices available, Tiffany lamps simply stood out as truly artistic representations of a very practical and common household item. Their quality and variety could not be matched by competitors but the popularity of his lamp began to wane from about 1910 onward.

Though Tiffany Studios continued to produce the leaded glass lamps on into the early 1930's, their popularity continued to plummet. Because they were mass-produced and so many people had them, the Tiffany lamp became an overused clich?. By the time his company declared bankruptcy in 1932, Tiffany lamps were considered passe by most people's account.

The Tiffany Lamp Revival

Louis Comfort Tiffany died in 1933 so he did not live to see his creation's resurgence in popularity. At the time of his death, the master artisan could never have guessed that he would be most remembered for his mass produced lamps. For the very same reasons that his lamps became popular at the turn of the century, quality and variety, they have once again become chic. Every L.C. Tiffany lamp is an original despite having been mass-produced. The selection of the colors and textures of the "Favrile" glass was unique to every lamp. Not only are original Tiffany lamps of exceptional quality and variety, but they are all one-of-a-kind pieces of art. To this very day, a small number of acclaimed manufacturers keep the Louis Comfort Tiffany legacy alive by recreating his lamps and continuing to provide new generations with the opportunity to experience "The Touch of Tiffany".

In The News:

Tracking the progress of the third party testing we at PES are coordinating along with U-Plug Products LLC, of their 2 kW U-Plug magnet motor that is a 24"x6" portable cylinder weighing 20 pounds, expected to cost 2,000 USD. We want to run it three times longer (21 hours) than what the best batteries available could provide. (PESWiki; February-April 2016)
Pre-launch video announces a new LENR website coming March 1, 2016 at http://LookingForHeat.com The video is very well done as an entertaining piece that hopefully will go viral. (Free Energy Blog; February 21, 2016)
It's not easy to find a qualified testing agency that is also willing to sign off on something that appears to defy our existing understanding of the laws of physics. U-Plug has agreed to allow for a group of us scientists, including at least 3 PhDs to go test their unit and publish our report. (PESN; February 20, 2016)
So that this is quite clear, this is a test on a Regular Torch. NOT the ELFE flashlight. This is to compare them. 2 x NiMH AA 1.2v Battery's in a Regular Torch with a Halogen Bulb. Load is 2.8v and 0.85amps. (PESN; February 17, 2016)
Video explains the scientific principles behind how the ELFE flashlight harnesses endless free energy from the environment (Earth's magnetic field), which works better in some regions than others. It also shows the insides the torch. Uses the word "antennae," as one of the components. (PESN; February 14, 2016)
"The OPhone contains a capacitor that directly powers our phone. During extensive use this capacitor may become discharged, however this capacitor is being constantly trickle charged by Orbo. So after a period of time the capacitor will be recharged and the phone will be functional again. In essence the phone is charging itself." (Free Energy Blog; February 13, 2016)
The company that has figured out how to harness the earth's magnetic field to produce usable power and has been selling the ELFE flashlight (two more customer reports), is now developing a 3 kW generator. In two weeks, they are holding a business meeting for international distributors. (PESN; February 12, 2016)
Illinois company is gearing up to manufacture a 2 kW (115 volts, 17.3 amps) magnet motor that is load-following, portable, 24"x6" tube, weighing 20 pounds, very quiet, with 3-year warranty but expected to last at least 20 years with zero maintenance. Third-party tested. MSRP 2000 USD, beginning March, 2016, through distributors. (PESWiki; February 11, 2016)
The government agent who worked on this technology five decades ago, that is similar to Professor Steven E. Jones' Joule Ringer, thinks it is conceivable that we could eventually scale this solid state technology up to have a device the size and price of an air conditioner providing 20 kw. (PESWiki; February 9, 2016)
Nagendra Singh in Mumbai, India, informs us that they have built five of these and have two running for customers presently, in the 40 kVA range. "Presently it is too [expensive], costing 3200 USD per kva below 30 kva." (PESWiki; February 8, 2016)
The SunCell is described as a solid state "Sun in a Box." A 200 kW module would weigh around 250 pounds, with energy production cost being around 1 cent/kwh, so return on investment could be ten days. They are expected to be available commercially by Q1, 2017. (PESN; January 6, 2015)
"Today I received my Elfe Flashlight and it works. Time will tell if it meets the claims of automatically recharging, when depleted. If it holds, the claims a real breakthrough in FE technologie would have been accomplished." -- German customer (PESWiki; February 6, 2016)
The phone battery indicator stays near full even with heavy usage throughout the day. (The battery is charged by the internal OCube that pulls energy from the wheelwork of nature, solid state). (PESWiki; February 5, 2016)
The capacity of the Proton-3ND (Proton -3 Nano Diffusion) battery is projected to be 44 times the capacity of lithium batteries. Electric vehicles with these batteries would have more power and much more mileage at no extra charge. (PESN; January 4, 2016)
HH2 water fuel cell creates pure hydrogen off a 9-volt battery. This was a big diesel HH2 cell that was tested on a 16-liter Cat engine for CARB testing; yet it ran on very low amps and a low 9 volts. (PESWiki; February 3, 2016)
A former U.S. Government worker describes his effort to bring to public awareness (by highlighting things presently in the public domain) energy and anti-gravity technologies that the government had operational 50 years ago but has kept from the public. (PESN; February 2, 2016)
Imagine an incandescent bulb that is actually more efficient than LEDs! Well, it actually exists (MIT) and it does so by recycling light. (Free Energy Blog; February 2, 2016)
SMBC-Comics.com has posted a fun spoof on our skeptics. (Free Energy Blog; February 1, 2016)
"OK, so a lot of people are asking what's the difference between an Orbo power cell and traditional batteries." Batteries store energy, Orbo generates energy, then trickle charges a lithium ion battery.] (Free Energy Blog; February 1, 2016)
Mr. Keshe is as misleading in the field of free energy as he is regarding me. That has been my experience the years I've been exposedto his work. He takes something and blows it so far out of proportion that it barely resembles the fact from which it was extrapolated into infinity. He demands: "Close PESWiki now." (PESWiki; January 31, 2016)
They have achieved solid state operation using an electromagnetic pump to spray the molten silver between the electrodes for the 1000/second continuous pulsing for continuous power production. (Free Energy Blog; January 29, 2016)
