American, circa 1895

An extremely rare early glass and bronze hanging fixture by Tiffany Glass & Decorating Company, the predecessor to Tiffany Studios.

This unusual light fixture comprises a blown glass shade in a hue of deep amber with thick vertical "ribs," the shade with an acid washed finish which lends a soft tone to the light. This rare shade is cradled from and suspended by a complex series of twisted bronze wires in the Moorish taste.
