22" Tiffany Dogwood Table Lamp On American Indian Bronze Base

Welcome to Fontaine's Antique Auction Gallery. We have long been known for record setting prices for fine and rare antiques. One of our many specialties is 20th century lighting including such works by Louis Comfort Tiffany of Tiffany Studios New York.
Here our featured item is a 22" Tiffany Banded Dogwood Leaded Floral Table Lamp on an American Indian Bronze base.

The leaded glass shade shows a geometric pattern throughout which is created by green and white Striated Glass cut to small quadrangular pieces. This pattern is shown in 8 Rows from the top (or aperture) of the shade and 3 rows from the bottom rim. The Dogwood floral pattern is featured in a banded border, stretching into the 8th geometric row from the top and the 3rd geometric row from the bottom. Each of the flowers consists of 4 pieces of opaque mottled glass depicting the petals and a 5th yellow piece in the centers. Surrounding the flowers within this border are large green leaves, showing some gray striations, and brown translucent branches, visible in 3 places. The aperture (or top opening) of the shade is 5" in diameter and the shade is 8.5" high. The lower rim, which is 22" in diameter, is edged with a ½" unusual heavy bronze border. The top of the lamp shows a reticulated spun bronze heat cap with a teardrop finial, which sits over the shade.

Looking at the underside of the shade you will see that the lead work is applied just as carefully and elegantly as the outside. You can also see 4 reinforcement ribs running from the border to the aperture. This is very common in Tiffany's larger shades. Here you will also find the metal tag, which bears the signature "Tiffany Studio's New York. The bronze base is in the American Indian pattern; it shows a very nice dark brown patina. The platform of the base is 11.5" in diameter. It is molded with squares and rectangles in a linear pattern. Moving up the stem is a long fluted section with a band of more scattered square shapes above and below. The spherical light cluster consists of swirling arms reaching out to 3 original louvered paddle sockets by Perkins. Mounted to the top of the cluster is a riser with a 5" wheel, on which the shade sits. The base is signed on the bottom plate -- Tiffany Studios New York 529.
