Lamp of the Week: 28" Grape

The distinctive foliage and plentiful fruit produced by climbing grape vines were a popular motif in Tiffany windows and lamps. This 28" Grape design is a variation on the 28" Grape Trellis shade, and we were able to obtain this rare non-repeating pattern from an original Tiffany lamp in a local collection. For this example, grapes in deep blues and purples cluster freely about the shade amid rich green foliage set against a lightly textured blue/purple/green background. Created in 2002 as a showroom piece, the shade is now in a private collection in Iowa.
