Marks: stamped: on metal tag inside shade: "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 1495-12"
The uncharacteristic color scheme of this shade, particularly the bright blue used in the border, is just one clue that this is not a product of Tiffany Studios. As in this example, a Tiffany Studios signature tag is not necessarily proof of authenticity.
