Lamp of the Week: 16" Tulip Field

During the course of their production, Tiffany Studios occasionally made adjustments to their lamp patterns. A good example of this is the 16" Tulip and 16" Tulip Field shades. At a glance, the two shades appear to have the same design, but the Tulip Field has a denser cluster of flowers at the top of the shade. It can be assumed that the pattern was simplified after its initial design to ease production. At Century Studios, we offer both versions. The Tulip Field shade, shown on the Library base, was created as a showroom piece in 2010 and is now in a private collection.
