Metropolitan Museum of Art

Manhattan, New York: An expansion of the Deedee Wigmore galleries, the American Wing is devoted to the arts of Louis C. Tiffany, one of the most versatile and talented American artists working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The collection highlights the Museum's preeminent collections and features Tiffany's windows, lamps, furniture, mosaics, blown Favrile glass vases, pottery, enamelwork, and jewelry. In addition, there is a rotating display selected from the Museum's collection of more than 400 design drawings from Tiffany's studios. The Museum also houses the Loggia from Laurelton Hall, Tiffany's Long Island estate destroyed by fire in 1957. The intricate columns which formed this entrance can be seen in the image above.

The MET is one of five museums to own a Tiffany Studios "Pond Lily" lamp. After a 25 year quest, Macklowe Gallery has acquired our own model of the "Pond Lily," of which less than 10 examples exist. The MET describes the lamp as "one of Tiffany's most effective floral lamps, with its subtly toned buds and blossoms cascading from the shade crown to its irregular border formed by creamy color-tinged petals. A variety of glass was used to replicate the color and texture of both the flower and the watery bog, seen in the translucent rippled blue glass between the pink opalescent stems. The organic character of the lamp is accentuated by the bronze support, which replicates broad, flat lily pads clustered around a base with climbing stems that disappear into the blossomed shade."
