Tiffany Studios New York "Maple Leaf" Table Lamp

This rare and unusual "Maple Leaf" table lamp design from Tiffany Studios New York is significant not only for its beauty, but also because it was one of the last created at the Tiffany Studios, debuting in the 1915 Price Catalog. The mottled leaded glass, a beautiful technical innovation of Louis Comfort Tiffany, wonderfully recreates the effect of dappled light shining through tree leaves in hues of green, blue, and orange in this special shade, which depicts mature Sugar Maple leaves, getting read to drop against a powder blue sky. The shade sits atop a Tiffany Studios New York patinated bronze "decorated junior" table lamp base, with an onion bulb design.

Maples must be about 30 years old before they start seeding, so Tiffany chose to represent a mature seeding tree in autumn, with three rows of green and orange samaras dropping through the sky to the ground, ensuring a wonderful sense of realism in the piece.
