Tiffany Studios , 16 Inch Acorn
16" diameter Acorn pattern table lamp with exceptionally pretty white mottled glass with significant yellow speckling. The patina is black and the signature tag is small, both indicative of an early lamp, probably from the 1890s. Originally the base would have been kerosene, but it was later converted to electricity.
The base is even rarer than the shade. It is hand-blown Favrile glass that complements the shade well. The bronze parts have a beautiful original patina. Acorn is not a rare pattern, but this example is. Wonderful condition with very few hairline cracks in the shade. Mint condition base. Properly signed on both the shade and base.
