Tiffany Studios New York "Nautilus" Table Lamp With "Mermaid" Base
Featured on this Tiffany Studios New York "Nautilus" table lamp is an exceptional example of Louis Comfort Tiffany's highly-collectible and specially-patented shell designs. The curvilinear mottled glass "Nautilus" shell-shaped shade is made up of individual glass tiles that graduate in color from green to pale yellow as they reach their peak of breadth. The leaded glass shell sits atop a patinated bronze "Mermaid" base that was designed by the famed American sculptor, Louis A. Gudebrod for Tiffany Studios New York.
