Tiffany Studios Spider Lamp

About the Item

This Tiffany Studios geometric leaded glass and bronze table lamp features the iconic Spider shade and its original complementary Mushroom bronze base. The unique form of the spider and web-inspired shade combines with the soft green and yellow gradient of the glass tiles to display the unparalleled craftsmanship and innovation of Tiffany Studios. This table lamp shows off the Tiffany hallmarks of nature-inspired aesthetics alongside a beautifully unified artistic form that nearly comes alive when the lamp is turned on. While many Tiffany shades and bases were interchangeable, this combination is well-known as particularly desirable for its dramatic look. The scalloped-edge shade takes a special finial that evokes the body of a spider at the center of its freshly spun web. The mushroom base adds marvelous texture and celebrates the union of art and nature for which Tiffany Studios is so renowned. Louis Comfort Tiffany is internationally recognized as a master of the American decorative arts. Considered to be the driving force behind the Art Nouveau style in America, Tiffany worked in nearly every decorative medium imaginable, but his glass creations are his greatest legacy. This incredible example shows the firm’s astonishing ability to combine unique artistry and refinement, resulting in a striking lamp that is a functional work of art. This shade and base pairing is pictured in Alastair Duncan's Tiffany Lamps and Metalware, 1988, p. 63, no. 238, and in Dr. Egon Neustadt's The Lamps of Tiffany, 1970, p.73, no. 106. Circa 1910 Shade marked "Tiffany Studios/New York/1424" Base impressed "Tiffany Studios/New York/337" 17 1/2" high x 14 1/2" diameter

  • Gallé Cameo Glass Table Lamp
    By Emile Gallé
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    Statuesque and artfully etched, this exquisite cameo glass table lamp is the work of the famed Art Nouveau master Émile Gallé, one of the most highly regarded names in French glassmaking. The artist's appreciation of nature is on full display in the detailed Marguerite daisy pattern carefully etched in varying layers of colored glass. The blooms dance across the lamp's amber-colored form in mesmerizing shades of purple and red. When lit, the lamp emits an enticing warm glow. Nearly two feet in height, the lamp is much larger than is typical of Gallé's pieces, yet it maintains its grace and proportion. Émile Gallé opened a small woodworker's shop in 1885, where he began experimenting with marquetry in furniture and naturalistic glass designs. In 1889, he displayed his new glass creations at the Paris International Exhibition, where the designs and colors not previously seen caused an immediate sensation. The new style of Art Nouveau had begun to appear, and the movement's aesthetics and devotion to nature appealed greatly to the young Gallé. In 1894 Gallé built a manufacturing plant in Nancy and began creating his own designs from inception through production. Gallé personally developed many of the designs, and he was known to actively make alterations and approve the designs of his talented team of designers and craftsmen he employed at the "Cristallerie D'Emile Gallé." Signed "Gallé" on shade and base Circa 1920 Literature: A. Duncan, G. de Bartha, Glass by Gallé, London, 1984, p. 170, pl. 245 for another lamp of this model A. Duncan, G. de Bartha, Gallé Lamps...
