Lamp of the Week: 20" Turtleback Chandelier

This unusual 20" Turtleback Chandelier was created using large turtleback tiles which were pressed using molds taken from an original example. The amber/butterscotch glass tiles were custom made for Century Studios and took several years of trial and error to get the color just right. The tiles have a strong amber lustre surface. The spaces between the large tiles are filled by hand cutting/fitting/faceting chunks cut from additional tiles. The finished shade realistically resembles the shell of a large tortoise. We can also create this shade using green turtlebacks. This stunning lamp is currently available in our showroom.
