    Appraisal Transcript:
    GUEST: Well, my great-grandfather was a surgeon in Kansas City, and this was his lamp.

    APPRAISER: Well, it is a Tiffany Studios lamp. Moorish pattern, probably dates from about 1910 or so, I'm not exactly sure. You brought us a photograph showing the lamp in the original interior of the house.

    GUEST: Yes.

    APPRAISER: Which is really great to see.

    GUEST: Good.

    APPRAISER: What's nice about this particular example is that it has all its parts. I've never seen a lamp where all the prisms are there. They're reinforced in such a way that they don't fall off. Whereas the other prisms I've seen are usually hooked very flimsily on a little S-hook, and that explains why they're all gone. But that makes this pretty valuable. This particular lamp in the market today in a retail venue, could sell anywhere from $25,000 to $35,000.

    GUEST: Great. That's wonderful.
