Lamp of the Week: Bell Lotus
The 15" Bell Lotus shade is an unusual Tiffany Studios lamp pattern. The shade is a smaller version of the 25" Mandarin Lotus shade. In both patterns, the surface of the shade undulates in an accordion pleat. Applied wire work on the peak of each pleat accentuates the three dimensional look of the shade. The coloration for this shade makes a dramatic shift from green to white. The Ribbed Harp base mimics the profile of the shade. This lamp was created as a showroom piece in 2006 and is now in a local collection.
