Tiffany Studios New York "Russian" Table Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York "Russian" table lamp in which intricate patterning in bright clementine hues can be found dancing over a background that graduates from sky blue with interruptions of blush to a resolute royal blue at its apex. Large panels of rippling turtleback glass in deep amber mimic the appearance of decorative windows, or perhaps an alcove in relief, and are framed in starkly cut, rectangular panels of glass in similar orange tones. The lamp sits on a a tapering square columnar based, depicting a different woman on each of the four sides above the inscriptions Veritas, Charitas, Fides and Puritas (Truth, Charity, Loyalty, and Purity.)
