Arrowhead Table Lamp

American, circa 1904
Diameter: 20 inches (50.8 cm)
Height: 25 inches (63.5 cm)

An original Tiffany Studios leaded glass lamp, comprising an early example of the 20-inch diameter Arrowhead Shade, resting on a bronze Cattail and Pond Lily Table Base in dark brown patina.

The shade depicts a series of stylized tri-lobed Saggitaria Latifolia leaves in rich green and white streaky glass, rising from thin green stems, interspersed throughout the central and lower register with clusters of flowers, each with three white petals articulated in either mottled or rippled Tiffany glass, with bright yellow rippled glass forming the flower centers. Behind the floral composition, a background of "foliage" glass, a rare type developed by Tiffany Studios, formed by translucent white glass with pale pink and green inclusions, while the crown of the shade depicts a sky shifting from deep blue tinged with green streaks to a soft pale blue. The lower edge of the shade features a geometric border in blue, gold and green.

The Cattail and Pond Lily Table Base was one of the most sculptural bronze lamp bases produced by Tiffany Studios; it depicts a series of textural marshy grasses rising from a foot of chased lily pads and buds. When paired with the Arrowhead Shade, the lamp becomes a sculptural representation of the water's edge. Both the shade and base of this authentic Tiffany lamp are signed.

Poppy Table Lamp

American, circa 1906
Diameter: 20 inches (50.8 cm)
Height: 27 inches (68.58 cm)

An elegant Tiffany Studios Poppy Lamp comprising a 20-inch diameter Poppy shade, featuring mottled poppy flowers in shades of light to deep orange against a mottled green background. Probably designed by Clara Driscoll, famed Tiffany Girl and manager of the Women's Glass Cutting Department at Tiffany Studios, the shade utilizes pierced brass filigree to create a sense of depth. The brass filigree used to articulate the veins of the leaves along the lower edge of the shade is placed behind mottled green glass, mimicking the transparency of a delicate leaf, while the flower's center is formed by a piece of filigree placed on the surface of the glass, where the gilt metal catches the light. The shade is paired with the "Twisted Vine" base, an elegant naturalistic base in the Art Nouveau taste, in matching gilt patina; when the lamp was originally purchased at Tiffany Studios, this finish would have added an additional 25% to the cost of the lamp. Both the shade and the base of this original Tiffany lamp are signed.
