We now know that the famed "Drophead Dragonfly" table lamp was designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany's little known cohort of female designers, the self-styled "Tiffany Girls" who have now been the subject of many major museum exhibitions. Macklowe Gallery is proud to represent the work of their leader, Clara Driscoll, as well as all the women of Tiffany Studios New York.
