"Dragonfly" Tiffany Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York leaded glass and patinated bronze "Dragonfly" table lamp. This shade features six dragonflies with green bodies and amber hued wings against a blue, green and yellow ground that fades into yellow at the top. Each dragonfly is adorned with crimson-colored glass eyes, and on one of the dragonflies the eyes are shifted so as to make it appear as if the insect is turning its head. The scene is contained in a lower border of yellow-green mottled glass with hints of blue. The shade sits atop a "Blown" base of alternating dark and lighter green, sitting on patinated bronze lily pads. Louis Comfort Tiffany's "Dragonfly" lamps have become so iconic and loved because the artisans who made them were not limited in color as they were when making floral and geometric shades. Here we see the background fading from a bright green-blue to a yellow-green, and we can imagine that the dragonflies who adorn the lower edge of the shade are flying low across a verdant field. Similar shades, in various colors, are pictured in: The Lamps of Tiffany, by Dr. Egon Neustadt, New York: The Fairfield Press, 1970, pp. 102-105. A similar base is pictured in: Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models, by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1988, p. 39, plate 130.

Tiffany Studios New York "Geometric Tile" Chandelier

A Tiffany Studios New York "Geometric Greek Key" chandelier. The domed shade has a central white opalescent turtleback tile with gold iridescence, from which radiates a geometric pattern of graduating glass tiles in white and amber tones, all set within a wide Greek Key patterned rim in verdigris patina, supported by four handles and chains. A similar chandelier is pictured in: Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models, by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1988, p. 316, plate 1263. Brief Overview of the Chandelier Tiffany was a man preoccupied with Grecian decor. In the same year this fixture was produced, Tiffany threw his famed Quest for Beauty pageant for his sixty-eighth birthday on February 19, 1915. The Greek pageant illustrated the journey of mankind from caveman to cultured artistic civilization. Tiffany spared no expense, spending $15,000 on lights, and hiring a cast of forty-two professional actors. Lining the back of the actors, were a row of Grecian shields including the shield of Medusa. The iridescence for which Tiffany was most renowned was inspired by the iridescence of Roman and Grecian glass. As a close friend of the Met Museum's president, he kept up to date with the latest archaeological discoveries. The lamp's amber glass is of particular richness, owing to the fearless experimentation of Tiffany's lead chemist Arthur J. Nash. Nash added unconventional materials such as birch bark and burnt oats to create glass that varied in value and delighted with their imperfection. It is extremely rare to find a chandelier with exquisite bronze work surrounding the overall leaded glass composition. In 50 years specializing in the artwork of Louis Comfort Tiffany, this is the first "Greek Key" border chandelier we have had the good fortune to offer for sale.
