Tiffany Studios New York "Spider" Table Lamp

This Tiffany Studios New York glass and bronze “Spider” table lamp features a mottled golden glass shade of undulating golden hues, atop a patinated bronze “Inverted Mushroom” base. With Gothic, arachnid-type raised veins spreading from the clawed top of the lamp, the starkly geometric and roughly monochromatic lamp is far from simplistic, as a broadly scalloped border adds to the sense that elements of this amazing lamp are alive.

Though by and large a "geometric" lamp, the highly organic elements of this table lamp are what have lent it its name. With the suggestion of spider legs reaching downward over the geometric lines, the lamp shade can be read as a spider's web, backlit by the golden light of early dawn or setting sun.
