Tiffany Studios "Zodiac Damascene Harp" Desk Lamp
Dating from 1906-1920, this Tiffany studios desk lamp is composed of Damascene favrile glass and a gilt bronze Zodiac base. The green domed shade with golden brown accents exhibits a wave pattern, with subtle iridescent touches, and is suspended from a twist top that permits the light to be angled, all supported by harp form arms and a Zodiac base with figural medallions among scrolling motifs. This versatile little lamp offers soothing green illumination and an intriguing synthesis of undulating patterned glass and intricately carved ornament.
