Lamp of the Week: 18″ Peony

Peony flowers symbolize romance, prosperity and good fortune, and this showy flower was a frequent inspiration for lamps at Tiffany Studios. For the flowers of this 18″ Peony shade we chose an intensely colored fuchsia glass blended with candy apple red, royal purple, deep bubble gum pink, and milky white. To enhance the intensity of the flower colors, a blue and yellow background glass with an undercurrent of the deep fuchsia was chosen. The lush greens in the leaves and border rows give a fullness to the design.

The shade is shown on the Grooved base (26″ tall). This lamp was created as a showroom piece in 2019 and is now in a private collection.
