A pair of Tiffany Studios New York "Dogwood Ball" leaded glass and bronze floor lamps on tripod-form "Vinson" floor bases. Circa 1905.

Provenance Grand Hôtel, Stockholm, Sweden Presented to an employee of the Grand Hôtel, circa 1920 Thence by descent to the present owner These magnificent floor lamps were part of the interior furnishings of the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm in the early twentieth century. The hotel was founded by French Chef Régis Cadier in 1874, and remains today one of the premiere hotels in Europe. In 1898 the interior of the hotel was renovated by leading architects, Thure Stenberg and Ludvig Peterson, who had previously worked in the United States. These floor lamps remained until the early 1920s, at which time the hotel underwent a major renovation in the Swedish Grace style, and the lamps were gifted to a hotel staff member. They have remarkably descended in the same family to the present date (2014), remaining together as a pair. Both shades signed: ''TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK''. One base signed: ''S1077/378/ TIFFANY STUDIOS/NEW YORK''. Dimensions: 67-1/2'' high. Diameter of shades: 9?''

Petite Coupe Sur in Enamel and Gold by Thesmar

Petite coupe sur talon in enamel and 18 karat gold by André Fernand Thesmar (1843–1912). In original box. André Fernand Thesmar (1843-1912) was a French enameler. He is credited with bringing the style of soft-paste porcelain back into style, alongside sections with gold foil backings, in the 20th century. He also used the method of plique-à-jour, including works that were often inspired by Japanese and Chinese enameling. He showed his work at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. The floral motifs that adorn this petite coupe sur talon by André Thesmar appear to float due to the expert use of plique-à-jour, a type of enamel that has no backing so that light can shine through it like leaded glass. Thesmar's ability to create such an exceptional piece in gold and enamel shows a combination of artistry and technical genius that is very rare to come by. A similar coup sur talon is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

"Dragonfly" Tiffany Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York leaded glass and patinated bronze "Dragonfly" table lamp. This shade features six dragonflies with cobalt and periwinkle bodies and pale blue wings against a grassy green ground that fades into white at the top. The upper portion of the lamp is spotted with what Tiffany called "moonstone glass" jewels that emulate adularescence, or the specific quality of iridescence that moonstones have. Each dragonfly is adorned with garnet-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. White mottled glass geometric upper and lower borders contain the scene within them. The shade sits atop a decorated patinated bronze base which evokes flower bulbs with overlaid scrolling bronze vines that wrap around the stem. 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 white to a deep green, and we can imagine that the dragonflies who adorn the lower edge of the shade are flying low across a verdant field. A similar shade is pictured in: "The Lamps of Tiffany", by Dr. Egon Neustadt, New York: The Fairfield Press, 1970, p. 105, plate 153. 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. 74, plate 286.

"Peacock" Tiffany Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York Peacock leaded glass and bronze table lamp. The peacock was one of Tiffany's favorite motifs. Here, brilliantly colored peacock feathers against a rich purple ground create the pattern of the shade with the quills of the feathers prominently visible and the twenty peacock eyes arranged in two staggered rows. Brick borders of green and yellow mottled glass and a scalloped apron further decorate the shade which sits atop a patinated bronze "Peacock" base specially designed for it. The play of light through the mottled glass, with its regal color palate, imbues the shade with the iridescence and beguiling mystery of real peacock feathers. A similar lamp is pictured in: "The Lamps of Tiffany, by Dr. Egon Neustadt, New York: The Fairfield Press", 1970, p. 139, plate 197. The shade is also pictured in: "Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models", by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antiques Collectors' Club Ltd., p. 142, cat. 592, shade #1472.
