Tiffany Studios "Dragonfly" Table Lamp

About

A Tiffany Studios New York leaded glass and patinated bronze "Dragonfly" table lamp. This shade features six dragonflies with green bodies and green-hued wings against a green and yellow ground that fades into the green-hued top. Each dragonfly is adorned with amber-colored glass eyes. The scene is contained in a lower border of yellow-orange-hued mottled glass. The shade sits atop a scroll base comprised of gilt bronze scroll embellishments circling the foot of the base, circa 1900. 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. Note: "A Dragonfly lamp was one of Tiffany's first recorded lampshades, having been shown at the Grafton Galleries in London in 1899. This closely related model presented here was introduced the following year at the 1900 Paris World's Fair. Equally important, here we know the name of the lamp's designer: Clara Driscoll. Louis C. Tiffany made it a point to suppress all mention of the names of his company's workers but, in this instance, the information regarding authorship came from an article about Driscoll and thus bypassed Tiffany's censorship. It (the shade) was cited on the 1913 Price List, and it remained in production for yet another decade, with some eleven examples being made between 1921 and 1924." From The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Eidelberg, Frelinghuysen, McClelland, and Rachen (Thames & Hudson, 2005), pp. 186-88. Shade signed: ''Tiffany Studios New York''. Base signed: ''Tiffany Studios New York 584''.
