Tiffany Studios New York "Jeweled Feather" Table Lamp
The Jeweled Feather Lamp from Tiffany Studios showcases the vibrant, polychromatic brilliance reminiscent of a tropical bird. A line of roughly faceted emerald and amber glass mirrors the captivating eyes of a peacock feather, while a skirt of undulating green glass artfully mimics its delicate barbs. Rows of streaky russet-colored glass replicate the same hues found in the peacock's undertail, their muted warm tones complementing the dazzling vibrancy of its breast. The peacock, a recurring motif in Mughal, Chinese, and Japanese art, held a special place in Tiffany's oeuvre. The lamp's abstract interpretation of this intricately adorned bird makes it a charming addition to any study.
