24" Filigree Poppy

We are starting the new year with something large - a 24" Filigree Poppy shade!

This unusual Tiffany Studios shade design has all the bells and whistles. It is a generously proportioned shade with a multitude of brightly colored poppy flowers, has an irregular lower edge,  and features Tiffany's signature filigree overlays on the flower centers and leaves.

To create this shade, much care was taken to include many different flower colors in a variety of styles and textures of glass. A multi-colored, amber toned granite texture glass gives the shade a warm feel which is enhanced by the flower colors. Irwin worked on the layout during the Holiday Season and we completed the construction once we started the new year. In the photo to the right, Irwin is seen attaching the first filigree around the bottom edge of the shade.

This large shade is impressive on a Sr. Floor base, and would be equally stunning as a hanging chandelier. The 24" Filigree Poppy is currently on display in our showroom and available for purchase.

I'm curious---is the filigree for this shade something that your studio manufactured, or does it come from a another source? said...

Tiffany Studios used the same filigree in different configurations on all their poppy shades. We do the same.
