Tiffany Studios New York "Elizabethan" Table Lamp

This Tiffany Studios New York leaded glass and bronze table lamp, titled the "Elizabethan," is comprised of eight alluring panels. The typically arabesque design stems from a purplish-blue centered oval shape, surrounded by thin strips of mottled yellow and orange glass. A network of sinuous serpentine forms originates at the oval and spreads in every direction. Twenty-four assorted jewels add extra richness to each panel. In this fantasy of shape and color, each eye detects different images of flowers, figures, and faces.

The workmanship of this lamp is particularly noteworthy, both because of the large number of leaded pieces involved and the intricacy of the winding and twisting shapes. In addition, each purplish-blue segment is composed of a double layer of glass. While this technique was often employed in Louis Comfort Tiffany's stained glass windows, one rarely encounters it in the construction of shades.
