A Tiffany Studios New York "Tulip" table lamp. The shade features brilliant red tulips with green leaves against a blue ground and sits atop a gilt bronze "Mock Turtle" base. The flowers are recreated with stunning realism. In some cases, all six petals of some of the blossoms can be seen. The tulips are ingeniously overlapped to create the illusion of depth. Because of the sky blue ground on the upper portion of the shade and the earthy tones present throughout the lower apron, one has the impression of gazing at a tulip bed on a sunny afternoon.The lamp base and shade are pictured separately in: "Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models", by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antiques Collectors' Club Ltd.: base, p. 110, cat. 454, base # 587; shade, p. 179, cat. 682, shade # 1546.

A pair of French Art Nouveau lithographs, "Dawn and Dusk," by Alphonse Mucha.These two panels, both representing reclining female figures, are among the few horizontal formats produced by Mucha. These two ladies represent the terminal points of the sun's daily journey. Dawn is represented by a girl removing the coverlet from her nude torso as she looks towards the rising sun. Dusk is a somnolent beauty settling down in her bed under the last rays of the day. Some of the most delicate pastel shadings are used by Mucha to differentiate one from the other.
