The Dragonfly Lamp is one of the most iconic of Tiffany’s lamps. It won him awards, fame and fortunes. Chief studio artist, Clara Driscoll designed the lamp in 1900, inspired by the organic Art Nouveau movement. When exhibited, this lamp was strange and mysterious and an expensive home-decorative artifact. Today, the value of an original Tiffany Dragonfly Lamp has soared into the thousands of dollars.
The Classic Dragonfly Table Lamp has been our most popular item ever since displaying our first one in 1976 in our shop window at Polk Street Tiffany in San Francisco, California. The design looks deceptively simple, but as Ms. Driscoll conceived it, it has many stories to tell about a day in the life of dragonflies. Read about it in my monthly newsletter.
This shade has a pastel colored background of pale turquoise & mauve blended glass. It is powerfully trimmed top and bottom with cobalt blue glass. The dragonflies stand out with olive green bodies, silver wings and amber jewel eyes.
The heavy cast metal base is decorated in a high relief of stylized Art Nouveau flowers which is very suitable for a Dragonfly theme lamp. It is finished in satin antique bronze with slight brass highlights. It has a single, pull -chain socket that takes a standard 60-watt bulb.
This lovely Classic Dragonfly Lamp will enhance any room décor.
