Lamp of the Week: 18″ Turtleback

Commissioned by a Texas client in 2011, this 18″ Turtleback shade has an unusual shape. TheĀ  upper portion begins as a low dome that finishes with straight sides on the lower half of the shade. The turtleback tiles in the decorative band are narrow and wide, accentuating the horizontal look of the shade. This shade is made from a rippled glass in yellow green/spring green that has hints of light blue throughout. The rippled surface of the glass faces the interior of the shade, so when unlit the shade appears smooth and comes to life when illuminated. The shade is shown on the Decorated Library base.
