16″ Cyclamen

The 16″ Cyclamen shade is a rarely seen Tiffany Studios shade pattern. Native to Europe and the Mediterranean, cyclamen are known for their distinctively shaped flowers which appear to be blooming upside down. Cyclamen flowers come in shades of pink, white and purple, and can be delicately toned or vibrantly colored.

The flowers for this shade were made from “gold pink” glass that was created by Schlitz Studios in the 1980’s. Gold can produce beautiful pinks (and purples) that have a distinctive fuchsia tone. The flowers, supported by slender stems indicated by the vertical lead lines, hover peacefully against a blue sky above a blanket of dappled foliage. Commissioned by a client in Massachusetts, the shade is shown on the slender Grooved base (26″ tall).
