Tiffany Studios New York Four Light Jeweled Candelabra
Opulent in hue but refined in composition, this alluring four-light candelabra by Tiffany Studios New York features four golden iridescent Favrile glass shades resting upon an elegant four-armed jeweled patinated bronze candelabra base. The shades radiate warm, opalescent auras of golden light, even when unlit. These shades sit atop four bobèche with green reticulated glass cups that mimic the silhouette of a closed flower bloom, while the rippled glass rim hints at the possibility of their unfurling.
