Beginning in 1898, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) adapted his innovative Favrile glass window-making techniques to the production of artful lampshades. Although Tiffany Studios (1902-32) is famous for its floral motif shades, it also created arresting geometric designs, such as the Lotus Pagoda
lamp (1900– 15) in the Museum’s collection. The angular pattern on this lampshade was adapted from Japanese sources, which were of great interest to Louis Comfort Tiffany. It is the source for our handsome tie design.
Available in copper/blue and green/blue. Silk. Made in Italy. 3 3/4''W.
