Tiffany Studios New York "Twelve-Light-Lily" Table Lamp
This Tiffany Studios New York glass and bronze "Twelve-Light-Lily" table lamp, features twelve golden iridescent Favrile glass "Lily" shades on individual bronze stems extending upwards from an intricately sculpted and detailed bronze "Lily Pad" base. This exquisite and unique "Lily" lamp marks the combination of two of Tiffany's favorite floral motifs, the pond lily and the morning glory. These shades take the form of morning glories; entranced by their polychromatic brilliance and trumpet-like shape, and inspired by popularly distributed Japanese woodblock prints, Louis Comfort Tiffany made many water-color paintings of morning glories and meditated on them frequently.
