"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.

Tiffany & Co. Art Deco Moonstone, Montana Sapphire and Platinum Bracelet

An American Art Deco platinum bracelet with moonstones and sapphires by Tiffany & Co. The bracelet has 20 cabochon moonstones with an approximate total weight of 8.00 carats, and 127 round-cut Montana sapphires with an approximate total weight of 10.20 carats. Blue sapphires were discovered in Montana in the late 1800's by a gold miner working on one of the gravel bars on the Missouri River near Helena. "When Tiffany's renowned chief gemologist Dr. George F. Kunz first acquired Montana sapphires in the 1880s, he declared them among the highest quality sapphires on earth. The most exceptional specimens reflect the blue wildflowers and open skies of the state in which they were discovered. In 1889 and 1900, these (Montana) sapphires took center stage at Tiffany's world's fair exhibitions,"
