U.S. #3749A
1¢ Tiffany Lamp
American Design
 
Issue Date: March 7, 2008
City: New York, NY
Printed By: Banknote Corporation of America for Sennett Security Products
Printing Method:
Lithographed
Perforations:
Serpentine Die Cut 11 ¼ x 11
Color: Multicolored

U.S. #3749A features the same design as #3749, which was issued a year earlier. The stamps picture a Tiffany lamp, cherished around the world for their beauty and craftsmanship.
 
With the vision of an artist, Louis Comfort Tiffany created lamps unique in their design and in the process of making the stained glass. 
 
Tiffany first became interested in glass while he was an art student in France.  To recreate the iridescent colors of the ancient glass he saw in Europe, Tiffany opened his own glassmaking studio in New York.  There he developed a new way to create a luminous glass that he patented under the name Favrile.  Tiffany used this brilliantly colored glass to create the stained-glass lamps that made him famous worldwide. 
 
First exhibited at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, the stunning and innovative Tiffany lamps were instantly recognized for their artistic beauty and form.  To create these handmade works of art, Tiffany employed hundreds of artisans at Tiffany Studios.  The artisans either carried out Tiffany’s designs or created designs under his guidance.  The shade of every lamp began with an artist’s drawing.  Artisans then spent up to a week choosing and cutting hundreds of pieces of glass for the complex design of each shade.  The leaves, flowers, and other natural shapes were held together by leading.  Considered luxury items, Tiffany lamps sold at premium prices and are still prized today. 
 
The 2008 1¢ U.S. stamp, featuring a Tiffany Lamp with an irregular lower border, is a reissue of the 2007 stamp.
