Tiffany Studios New York "Lotus Bell" Desk Lamp

$65,000

This Tiffany Studios New York leaded glass “Lotus Bell” desk lamp features a beautiful, bell-shaped shade decorated with a cascading geometric design and ombré honey-hued glass tiles. The shade is suspended from a "Harp" patinated bronze base, which has a charming, rounded and deeply striated foot out of which two sinuous arms arise, meeting just above the shade. The top of the shade is attached to a fulcrum with the ability to swivel in either direction, for those who need a little more light in their space.

This "Lotus Bell" shade combines the two subcategories Tiffany Studios New York lovers and experts generally place lamps within; the floral or the geometric. Though staunchly geometric in the patterning of the shade, the organic shape, mirroring that of a lotus flower, gives this lamp an organic feel as well.
