18" Oriental Poppy
18" Oriental Poppy is an intricately detailed Tiffany Studios lamp design. Showy poppies in full bloom spill over the decorative border rows. For this shade, the flowers are rendered in striking reds with purple flower centers. The leaves are a mix of verdant greens mixed with red, orange, and blue highlights. Intermingling fracture, streaky, and ring mottled glass produce a sun dappled effect. The top of the shade shows beautiful blue sky peaking through the flowers. Commissioned by a client in California, the shade is shown on the Seven Handled Pottery base.
