Two Recent Lamps

Here are a couple of lamps we have recently completed. The first is a 20" Acorn shade which was commissioned by a client in the Boston area to add to his collection of Century Studios lamps. This large geometric shade was made in tones of green mixed with yellow. Rich amber acorns adorn the decorative band. It is shown on the Twisted Vine base. Upon receiving the piece, the client wrote, "This is my most favorite!! I can't stop looking at it! This is really beautiful! Thank you for exceeding my expectations!"

The second lamp is a 16" Geranium shade. This Tiffany Studios' shade design takes a common flower and elevates it to star billing. The glass for this shade has a blue/grey background (streaked with green) which is a perfect backdrop to the bold mixed leaf greens and vivid red flowers. To set off the plant colors, a light green ripple glass was used as the border color. The Geranium shade is shown on the Greek Urn base which is a recent addition to our Century Studios line of bases. This lamp was completed in time for the Arts & Crafts Show in September and was sold at the show.
