Lamp of the Week: 22" Laburnum

With just under 2000 individual pieces of glass, the 22" Laburnum shade is one of our most complex reproduction shades we offer. The naturalistic look of the shade is accentuated by irregular lower border. The rich golden yellow tones of this shade are enhanced by a delicate blue background glass. Shown on the popular Twisted Vine base, this lamp was commissioned in the mid 1990's by a client in St. Louis, MO.

The Laburnum blooms in the spring and is commonly known as the "Golden Chain Tree". Laburnum wood is used for cabinetmaking and inlay work, as well as for musical instruments.
