Tiffany Studios New York "Gentian" Flared Table Lamp

This Tiffany Studios New York "Gentian" table lamp sports a special flared shade, comprised of an exciting and unique composition of floral Gentian flower stalks of leaded green, blue, and white glass, enclosed in the patterning of Gothic arches. The middle row of the flaring apron is comprised of a row of uncut green glass meant to mimic the appearance of gemstones. The patinated bronze base complements the shade's composition by featuring openwork flower stalk decoration with a darker, gothic feel.

During the height of Louis Comfort Tiffany's creative peak, the Art Nouveau movement had made it relatively unpopular to harken back to aesthetics of the past in a staunch stance against revivalism, preferring instead to focus on natural motifs. Thus, it is both unique and noteworthy to find an example of the time that would adopt the beauty of time past, as Tiffany adopts a Gothic aesthetic in this incredible piece.
