Tiffany Studios New York "Jonquil-Daffodil" Favrile Table Lamp

The "Jonquil-Daffodil" table lamp by Tiffany Studios New York features a dome-shaped shade, divided charmingly into two bands of joyously bright blooms of sunny yellow daffodil and creamy white narcissus flowers. On the lower band of the shade, we see forty-eight dancing narcissus blossoms flirt with the blue-green geometric glass band that gently fences them from below. On the upper band, sixteen down-turned trumpet King Alfred daffodil flowers gaze adoringly at their white petaled neighbors below, dynamically overlapping a similar yellow-green glass band that separates them from the narcissi. The shade rests upon a gilt bronze "Twisted Vine" base.

Daffodils and narcissi were among the most abundant flowers 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. The pairing of the two flower varieties mirrors the type of artistry Tiffany brought to America, a marriage of beauty, both old and new.
