There are numerous risks involved in attempting to sell an authentic Tiffany lamp on your own. Making sure it is truly authentic and not a very good forgery is a very important issue. Pricing it right (not too high or too low) is another. Over exposure, or shopping an lamp around, to dealers, auction houses and online can have the most detrimental effects on the ultimate ability to sell a Tiffany lamp and/or to sell it for the price it should be worth.
The largest costs to the seller-owner when selling at auction or through a nice gallery are the fees and commissions they must pay to the auction house or gallery owner for selling their lamp (s). These fees quite often total between 20 – 40% of the actual sale price, leaving the consignor with much less money than they had hoped. We feel that since all buyers would have to pay a commission if they bought at any major auction house, or indirectly pay more if they bought from a consignment gallery, we will, as a broker, simply charge them a finders fee commission, and put none of the costs or commissions onto the lamp owner.
