Lamp of the Week: 20" Arrowhead

With a pattern that is both representational and stylized, the 20" Arrowhead shade has a distinct arts and crafts appeal. The arrowhead plant is found in shallow wetlands, which places this design firmly in the water plant group of Tiffany Studios shade designs. The distinctive leaves for which the plant is named reach toward the top of the shade. Delicate white flowers populate the spaces between the leaves. The decorative borders at the bottom of the shade reinforce the arts and crafts motif. This example was commissioned in 2005 by an out of state client. The pottery base was custom made for this shade by Ephraim Pottery.
