Tiffany "Turtleback" Bronze "Zodiac" Desk Lamp

A Tiffany Studios "Zodiac" turtleback desk lamp in dark patinated bronze with two dichroic blue/green turtleback tiles. The head swivels revealing one turtleback tile in the front and one in the back. The lamp base and the bronze frames for the two turtleback tiles are decorated with the twelve signs of the zodiac. The undulation and asymmetry of the bronze casing echoes the form of the turtleback tile. In his early 20s, before eventually transitioning to the Tiffany Studios in Corona, Tiffany set about finding his signature style. Among his earliest innovations was the "Turtleback" tile, that dated back to his collaborations with Louis Heidt in 1881. The turtleback tile and iridescence, among other inventions, distinguished him as a luminary of glass innovation. The interlaced strapwork design that repeats itself throughout the lamps zodiac design was inspired by Celtic and Norwegian Viking prototypes. To Tiffany, the Celtic interlace motif evoked the richly encrusted cover of an early medieval book. This allusion closely relates to the desk lamp''s place in an office-- a light in a place of unfettered learning. A similar lamp is pictured in: "Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models", by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors'' Club, 1988, p. 106, plate 424.
