Tiffany Studios “Flowering Water Lily” Table Lamp
This Tiffany Studios New York "Flowering Water Lily" leaded glass and bronze table lamp begins with joyous green pads, which serve as the base to the blooms that take center stage in this wonderful, watery composition are constructed of mottled glass with tints yellow and orange. Large, white blooms in white-pink are colored so as to appear almost velvety to the touch, while the background, due to being executed in ripple glass, truly captures the appearance of a deep, clear pond. A band of green mottled glass, interrupted by an occasional bud, rims the aperture. The entire composition sits on a specially made base that is striated with cattails and terminated in a pile of supporting lily pads that spread onto the surface on which it sits.
