The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass is dedicated to presenting and promoting the artwork of Louis C. Tiffany.
The mission of The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass is to preserve, interpret, and develop its holdings of Tiffany lamps, windows, glass, and related objects. The collection is accessible through exhibitions, public programs, and publications. A distinctive feature of the Neustadt Collection is its commitment to foster a better understanding of Tiffany by making its objects available through traveling exhibitions to museums and galleries around the country.
Additional activities include cataloging the Neustadt Collection’s nearly 300,000 pieces of flat and pressed glass used by the Tiffany Studios. An archive containing representative samples of each type, color, texture and pattern of this material is being established for exhibition and study.
The Neustadt Collection is also gathering oral histories from the families of former Tiffany employees in order to record and preserve the names and stories of the people who played an important role in Louis C. Tiffany’s success.
