The shade sits on a gilt bronze base decorated with open scrolling work, dark green glass cabochons and a series of small animals on the lower edge. All of the leading on the shade has gilt patina matching the gilt patina on the base. An interesting fact about this lamp is that Venetian lamps, when first offered for sale, had a list price of $250, while the Wisteria lamps were priced at $400, giving an indication of the importance of this design style. This was stated in the J. Walter Thompson price list of 1906. A similar lamp is pictured in: "The Lamps of Tiffany," by Dr. Egon Neustadt, New York: The Fairfield Press, 1970 p.72, plate 104.

This particular shade has a remarkable range of multi-colored red hued peony blossoms on swirled blue and purple background with a beaded top and bottom rim. Tiffany Studios manufactured a number of 28" hanging cone chandeliers. Each depicted an artist''s vision of a "dream garden," rather than reproducing natural forms and colors. These shades are among the most vibrant and colorful produced by the Studios. Although the variety of colors employed gives the impression that all these shades are unique in fact they use a single design.

Tiffany "Maple Leaf" Floor Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York "Maple Leaf" leaded glass and bronze floor lamp. The shade sits atop a Tiffany Studios New York patinated bronze "Decorated Junior" floor lamp base with Onion Bulb design.

The shade has a powder blue background meant to evoke the sky. Maples must be about 30 years old before they start seeding, so Tiffany chose to represent a mature tree in autumn, with three rows of green and orange samaras dropping through the sky to the ground, ensuring the species''s survival to the next generation. This rare and unusual "Maple Leaf" design was one of the last created at the Tiffany Studios, debuting in the 1915 Price Catalog. A similar shade and base are pictured separately in: A Tiffany Studios New York "Favrile" glass and patinated bronze desk lamp with a highly rare iridescent blue glass "Wave" design shade.
