Tiffany Studios New York "Daffodil" Table Lamp
Dynamic in composition and color, a shade of greens ranging from vibrant to pastel sits atop a charming twisted vine base in this Tiffany Studios New York "Daffodil" table lamp. An arrangement of bright daffodils in luminous yellow and orange hues is captured from every angle in this dimensional composition. Dancing on a ground of mottled jade green, the blooms and the stalks that frame leap outward toward the viewer as the shade is illuminated. A light green border further decorates the shade.

Daffodils were the most abundant flower on Louis Comfort Tiffany's 600-acre estate. They were notably the only flowers that Tiffany's children and grandchildren could freely pick, as Tiffany had thousands growing wild on the grounds. Comfort Tiffany Gilder, one of Tiffany's twin daughters, revealed in her 1962 poem Daffodils that, "in the spring the children (her brother and sisters) would run to the daffodils. Stop first to gaze with rapture, then darting here and there ... slowly picking daffodils one by one."
