With their showy multicolored feathers, peacocks are a natural inspiration for stained glass. Tiffany Studios created about a half a dozen peacock inspired lamp shades, and the 16" Peacock shade is still one of our favorites. Composed of eight pairs of swirling tail feathers, the design has a flurry of movement and opportunities to blend colors.
Commissioned by a client in Seattle as an anniversary gift, this 16" Peacock shade has a variety of blue tones which are accented with green and purple. The glass for this shade has a light granite texture that give the shade added sparkle when illuminated. This shade was created to be an inverted chandelier in an entryway, and also can be used as a table lamp. It is shown on the Greek Urn base.
