16" Poppy Shade

One of our more popular shade styles, the 16" Poppy is a classic Tiffany Studios design. This recently completed example is a lively lamp, with brightly colored flowers and fresh green background. The background glass is a Schlitz fracture that was made in the 1990's.

The Pond Lily - Blown Glass & Bronze base was created at our studio. We had the glass blown to our specifications by Lundberg Studios. Since each base insert is blown individually, no two are ever exactly the same. This lamp is in a local private collection.

Window of the Week: Winter

The Winter window was created as a studio piece in the mid-1990's. The window has three plated layers and uses drapery glass in the costume of the figure. This window is in the collection of a South Dakota client.

12" Geometric Turban

This 12" Geometric Turban shade was commissioned by a local client for their Handel Floor Base. The client requested the green/orange/red glass to have an allover color mix with no discernible pattern to the colors.

Antique harp style bases like this one often had blown glass shades which have been broken over the years, and a stained glass shade makes a nice replacement.

10" Pansy

We are pleased to introduce the 10" Pansy shade to our list of offerings. This new pattern is a Century Studios original adaptation of the larger 16" Pansy shade. The shade can be made in a multitude of colors, and is the perfect size for an accent lamp. This colorful shade was commissioned by a local client to use on their original Tiffany Studios lamp base.
