Tiffany Studios New York "Jeweled Geometric" Chandelier
This Tiffany Studios New York "Jeweled Geometric" leaded glass and bronze chandelier features an enticing shade, composed primarily of geometric glass tiles graduating from sky blue to yellow to ruby. This exquisite pattern is beautifully adorned and accented with iridescent glass beads of various colors, imitating the appearance of alluring cabochon jewels.
Originally designed by Tiffany exclusively as a plafonnier, this shade had been displayed as a table lamp prior to its most recent acquisition. In today’s world nearly all Tiffany chandeliers are lacking original Tiffany hardware or any Tiffany hanging parts at all. In some cases the chandeliers were originally made with kerosene lighting that was discarded with the widespread adoption of electricity. More frequently, original Tiffany hanging parts were left behind when the shades were taken to a new residence. Referencing an original Tiffany design found in historical literature, we brought the light back to its former glory as a chandelier, with a handmade suspension mechanism.
