Lotus Lamp

Tiffany Studios

leaded glass shade on a bronze and inlaid favrile glass mosaic base American, circa 1906

This rare Tiffany Studios Lotus Lamp is one of three known examples of the model; each lamp, utilizes a slightly different configuration to incorporate a series of decorated blown favrile glass globes. This particular example of the Lotus lamp was used to advertise the model in an original Tiffany Studios leather-bound photographic album dating from the period. Priced at $750 in 1906, this model was the most expensive of all the lamps sold by Tiffany Studios at that time.
