Rare Bird Lamp

Tiffany Studios <br> Rare Bird Lamp 1
Diameter: 16 inches
Height: 23 inches
American, circa 1902

One of only three known examples of the design, one of the earliest produced by the company, this extremely rare Tiffany Studios Bird lamp dates from 1902. The leaded glass shade, in the "Tyler" shape, features three birds each articulated in a masterful selection of richly pigmented streaky glass in shades of deep blue, green, purple, and brown, against a background of mottled green and blue glass, on a bronze “Decorated Cushion” table base, the leading and bronze finish in a rich brown patina. This Tiffany lamp has an original custom bronze reticulated heat cap in matching finish, which predates the later standardized slip-in heat caps.
