Tiffany Studios New York "Daffodil" Table Lamp
Dynamic in both composition and color, a shade of daffodils sits atop a charming miniature tree trunk base in this Tiffany Studios New York "Daffodil" table lamp. An arrangement of bright daffodils in hues of luminous yellow and stems of olive and emerald green are captured from every angle in this dimensional composition. Tiffany's glass selectors ingeniously lined up the large spots on a sheet of mottled glass with the center of the daffodil's trumpet, creating an illusion of three-dimensionality. Dancing on a ground that graduates from cerulean to streaky orange, yellow, and periwinkle glass. Tiffany’s streaky glass was meant to simulate the blurred appearance of a meadow in the distance. The blooms and the stalks that frame leap outward toward the viewer as the shade is illuminated.
