Lamp of the Week: 24″ Snowball

The 24″ Snowball is one of Tiffany Studios’ most creative shade designs. Covered in leaves and large flowers, the design encourages unexpected glass choices. Set against a lightly textured sparkling blue sky, a variety of off white and cream colored glasses are mixed with amber and green tones for the flowers. Emphasis is given to greens in the leaves with amber and cream being used as the accent tone. The irregular lower edge gives the shade a natural look. This generously proportioned shade can be used as an oversized table lamp, but was originally designed for use as a floor lamp or chandelier fixture. We created this example in 2012 and it is in a private local collection.
