Tiffany, Diamond Optic Shade

Diamond Optic Shade

I don't think I've ever owned a Tiffany Favrile diamond optic shade before. It's rare and beautiful. The decoration is opalescent and on the interior. "S" numbered, but not signed, because it was part of a larger set. Tiffany did not sign every shade in a set, but most people recognize that an "S" number is a sufficient signature. Mint condition.

I rarely get Favrile shades for sale by themselves, so this is a unique opportunity to get a gorgeous shade for your base. I bought it from a private collection that I've been buying from for several years.

It's a particularly nice shade, with strong green color and nicely formed ribs. The ribs show well when the shade is lit. It's also a little oversized at 7¼" diameter and quite deep at 4¾".

The condition is perfect, except for a small chip on the fitter rim, which is completely hidden when the shade is held in its fitter. Full signature "L.C. Tiffany Favrile" on the fitter rim.

Tiffany, Decorated Shade

Decorated Shade

Tiffany shades don't come any nicer or rarer than this one.  It's part of an original set of five that I have but I've decided to sell them individually as most collectors would only like to have one example.   Each one is signed and each one has one small fitter chip.  I bought them in original filthy condition and washed only one (the one at left) to see what it really looks like.  It's killer.  There are only two left.

This is one of the rarest shades I've ever come across in Tiffany.  I've never seen it before.  It was part of an original set of five.  There are two left, for sale individually.  The fitter is candlelamp size, so it's meant to sit on a ring, by gravity, as in a gold candlelamp.   It fits perfectly on either a candlelamp or a candlestick with the correct support.  Each of the two shades has a small chip on the fitter rim, otherwise mint.  I have intentionally not cleaned either shade, but will do so if asked by the buyer.  Signed.

Tiffany, Red Shade

Red Shade

Listed in Roberts' book as "No. 123, red (pink) Murano motif on an opal ground; signed L.C.T. Favrile; 2 7/8-inch fitter opening.  This piece could be an early gas shade."  This is one of Tiffany's rarest and most desirable shades.  By the way, I don't agree with Roberts' opinion that this may be an early gas shade, but that's my opinion.  Mint condition.  Signed.
