Lamp of the Week: 14″ Geometric w/Balls

One of the reasons no one can say exactly how many lamp patterns were produced by Tiffany Studios is because the creative minds at the Studios were always looking for new and interesting variations for their shades. This 14″ Geometric w/Balls is an example of how a plain geometric shade is transformed by the addition of a row of three dimensional lustre glass balls. The hand made balls are held in place individually in a oversized jeweler’s-style mount, allowing each translucent ball to pick up the light from inside the shade. Shown on the Shell Urn base, the shade was created in 2008 as a showroom piece and is now in a private collection.
