Tiffany Studios <br> Early Dragonfly Lamp 1
Diameter: 20 inches
Height: 26 inches
American, circa 1902-04

An original Tiffany Studios 'Dragonfly' Table Lamp, comprising a 20-inch diameter example of the 'Dragonfly' Shade, the bodies of the dragonflies in bright kelly green glass, their wings articulated in transparent variegated glass in shades of light gray, aqua and pale amber, accented by a mounted openwork filigree detail, with bold cobalt blue eyes, against a background of thick early "Ripple" glass which begins as a milky opalescent white near the crown of the shade before transitioning to bright yellow streaked with light green, with a larger concentration of green near the lower edge of the shade. The background is interspersed with a series of rounded green and opalescent white Tiffany glass jewels.

The shade rests on a bronze 'Decorated Cushion' table base in a rich brown patina and is paired with its original matching reticulated heat cap. Both the shade and the base of this original early Tiffany lamp are signed.
