Description

Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows. Starting in 1898 he adapted his method of making windows to the production of artful lampshades, frequently inspired by natural motifs. Although the artists craftsmen used patterns, each lampshade was unique due to the selection of the individual pieces of glass. This bright note cube features a lampshade from the collection of the New-York Historical Society Museum.

Produced in cooperation with the New-York Historical Society Museum.

Contains 500 sheets of loose paper with hole for pencil and 50 colored paper clips. Paperboard tray. 4 1/8'' x 3 1/4''.
