Lamp of the Week: 26″ Turtleback Chandelier

This 26″ Turtleback Chandelier was created using large turtleback tiles which were pressed using molds taken from an original example. The spaces between the large tiles are filled by hand cutting/fitting/faceting chunks cut from additional tiles. The finished shade realistically resembles the shell of a large tortoise. This lamp was created as a showroom piece and is now in a private collection.
