Tiffany Studios New York Glass “Dragonfly” Hanging Pendant


This Tiffany Studios New York “Dragonfly” glass pendant features a single dragonfly, with a reddish-orange body, ombre wings, and topaz jeweled glass eyes, set against a mottled reddish-orange and honey-colored glass ground. Wire mesh is used to delineate the veining on the dragonfly’s wings and two honey-colored topaz glass jewels are used to decorate the points where the chain attaches to the pendant, which can be used to hang the piece near a door or window, where it can magically capture daylight through it's colorful ground.

An important motif in Tiffany Studios New York's ouvre, these "Dragonfly" works are most often attributed to the design genius of Clara Driscoll, the woman who for so many years went unrecognized as the visionary behind many of Tiffany Studios New York's most iconic designs.
