Tiffany Studios New York "Peacock" Table Lamp

This Tiffany Studios New York "Peacock" leaded glass and bronze table lamp features a selection of brilliantly-colored peacock feathers against a rich galaxy of multi-toned glass to create the pattern of the shade, with the quills of the feathers prominently visible and twenty peacock eyes arranged in two staggered rows. Brick borders of mauve, orange-yellow, and cream and green glass, with a scalloped apron, further decorate the shade, which sits atop a patinated bronze "Peacock" base specially designed for it.

This specially designed base is one of the most remarkable made by Tiffany and demonstrates his love of the peacock feather as a subject. The base itself actually includes "Peacock" leaded mosaic glass in "eyes" at its foot. The play of light through the mottled glass, with its regal color palate, imbues the shade with the beguiling mystery of real peacock feathers.
