Lamp of the Week: 20" Jonquil Daffodil

The 20" Jonquil Daffodil is one of the few Tiffany Studios lamp patterns that incorporates two varieties of flower on the same shade. The upper half of the shade features large yellow daffodils in full bloom, with their trumpets nodding gracefully. The lower half is scattered with a profusion of delicate Narcissus blooms whose bright faces are turned upwards towards the sun. The subtle blue of the background glass and the green border tones interact harmoniously with the flowers. Commissioned in 2013 by a client in New York, the shade is pictured on the Decorated Library base (This base is currently not available).

16" Pansy

The 16" Pansy shade has four clusters of the delicate flowers set against a geometric background. The multicolored flowers are a perfect subject for representation in stained glass. For this shade, the background shifts from a light amber mixed with pale blue down to a vibrant blue with hints of yellow. Set against this colorful backdrop, the multicolored flowers playfully interact with one another. Commissioned by a California client, the shade is shown on the Greek Urn base (21" overall height).

16" Dragonfl

The 16" Dragonfly is a signature Tiffany Studios lamp design and one of our most popular shade patterns. For this shade, our client chose a deep red background glass as the main color for the shade. The red shifts to green in the lower half of the shade, and green is also used as an accent border row at the bottom. The dragonfly wings have tinges of blue mixed with the green and red, and the sparkling jeweled eyes are green. This example was commissioned by a local client and is shown on the Small Stick base (20" tall).

Lamp of the Week: 16" Persian

The 16" Persian Shade with Chain Mail is a geometric lamp with an exotic look.  The sunny yellow geometric upper and lower portions bookmark a decorative band of arabesques in accent tones of green and orange. Three rows of Chain Mail have been added to this shade, giving the piece an unique profile. We can add Chain Mail to almost any shade, and it is especially effective on chandelier fixtures. The lamp was commissioned in 2012 by a client in Kentucky and is shown on the willowy Grooved base (26" tall).

16" Fern

The 16" Fern is an intriguing shade pattern. At first glance, this low domed shade gives the impression of being a stylized geometric pattern. Upon closer inspection, the pattern is revealed to be a floral shade, with the recognizable long stems and leaves of a fern. Set against a light yellow background, the fronds are a medium green glass mixed with hints of amber. Commissioned by a local client, the shade is shown on the elegant Greek Urn base (lamp height 21").
