Tiffany Studios New York "Three Light Lily" Desk Lamp
This Tiffany Studios New York glass and bronze desk lamp features a "Three-Light-Lily" design with golden Favrile glass shades, suspended above a patinated bronze decorated "Artichoke" base. The delicate, undulating round form of the lily blossom's rim beautifully counterbalances the weight of the resolutely round artichoke base in this composition. The lilies, as always, point downward, so as to create a warm ambiance of light in a concentrated area.
