Tiffany Studios produced an extensive line of student lamps, which provided efficient and convenient lighting for desk surfaces. The lights, fueled by kerosene in the central canister, can be adjusted to the appropriate height by sliding the arms along the frame. Tiffany Studios' 1906 price list includes thirty models of single and double arm student lamps at prices ranging from $10 to $150.
