Lamp of the Week: 22″ Peony

With its large, showy blooms, the peony has over 40 varieties whose flowers vary from a single row of petals to deeply ruffled blossoms. Known in Eastern cultures as “the flower of riches and honor”, the peony is a favorite Tiffany floral motif. Peony flowers come in a variety of colors giving the lamp artist free reign to showcase spectacular flower glass. This richly toned 22″ Peony shade was created as a showroom piece in 2011 and is now in a private local collection. The rich amber background gives a backdrop of sunny warmth to the richly colored flowers that cover the shade. The shade is shown on the beautifully detailed Twisted Vine base (24.5″ tall).
