Lamp of the Week: Mermaid w/Nautilus

Mermaids are legendary aquatic half human, half fish creatures that have appeared in folklore and inspired artists of every civilization for thousands of years. The Mermaid w/Nautilus Shell is a unique Tiffany Studios lamp design. The cast bronze mermaid rises out of a churning sea carrying a lighted shell above her head. For this example, commissioned in 2006, we have created a shell that shifts in color from green at the center to off white at its opening.
