Tiffany Studios New York "Double Poinsettia" Table Lamp
A stunning study in perspective and a charming example of the multifaceted capabilities of Louis Comfort Tiffany's team of designers, the leaded glass shade and bronze base of this "Double Poinsettia" table lamp from Tiffany Studios New York offers an enchanting marriage of plentiful motifs and delicate details. The luscious red bouquets of poinsettia blooms featured in the lamp's shade are architecturally oriented by three bands of mottled yellow glass, framed by richly colored and sensitively rendered mottled green leaves. A sense of abundance is conveyed as the poinsettia blooms spill over the brightly colored bands that divide the composition, capturing the beauty of a bountiful spring. The shade sits atop a patinated bronze a telescoping reticulated "Queen Anne's Lace" base.
