Tiffany Studios "Turtleback Ball" Desk Lamp

About

A Tiffany Studios New York "Turtleback Ball" desk lamp with favrile glass and patinated bronze base. The base features a long swing arm culminating in a single blue iridescent tulip shade with green highlights. The incredible balance between the beautiful, undulating weight of the turtbleback glass in the piece's base and the light, feathery iridescent shade creates a work that is, as a whole, quite complex and incredibly special amongst Tiffany's oeuvre, circa 1900. A similar base and shade are pictured separately in: Tiffany lamps and metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models, by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1988. Shade: p. 100, plate 396; base: p. 97, plate 382. Base signed: ''Tiffany Studios New York 454''.
