"Peacock" Tiffany Lamp(257 views)
Description: A Tiffany Studios New York Peacock leaded glass and bronze table lamp. The peacock was one of Tiffany's favorite motifs. Here, brilliantly colored peacock feathers against a rich purple ground create the pattern of the shade with the quills of the feathers prominently visible and the twenty peacock eyes arranged in two staggered rows. Brick borders of green and yellow mottled glass and a scalloped apron further decorate the shade which sits atop a patinated bronze "Peacock" base specially designed for it. The play of light through the mottled glass, with its regal color palate, imbues the shade with the iridescence and beguiling mystery of real peacock feathers. (Item No.: 14651)
