Tiffany Studios New York "Damascene Counter Balance" Floor Lamp
This Tiffany Studios “Counter Balance” floor lamp features a green and gold iridescent damascene shade, which may be raised or lowered, and five-footed patinated bronze base. The green and gold damascene domed shade, with an upper band of iridescence, is surmounted by a lili-form heat cap, and suspended from a double arched arm terminating in an orb within a foliate cradle, balanced on an adjustable hinge, and raised on a shaped baluster ending in five legs with leaf-form feet. The versatile lamp can be usefully adjusted to provide directional light, while its graceful form, combined with iridescent and dichroic phenomena, intrigue and delight the eye.
