T Louis Comfort Tiffany Favrile glass shades. These lamps are as rare as they come, Tiffany Studios was awarded the grand prize at the 1902 Worlds Fair held in Turin Italy after exhibiting these lamps. The lily lamps designed by Tiffany Studios are a milestone in the history of lighting design. These lamps were introduced in the 1890s and are one of the first examples to show the capabilities of the new electric light. As an illuminated sculpture representing a living plant, the lily lamp fascinates and delights with its naturalistic rendering and mood enhancing glow.
They are the most decorative and beautifully hand made pieces of Tiffany glass and bronze I have ever seen. Each shade is hand engraved L. T for Louis Comfort Tiffany of course.The lily pad base is signed on both lamps Tiffany Studios New York with the serial number 319. In terms of the condition the lamps are totally hand made, the glass shades are hand blown and offer all different shades of blue and orange when the they are switched off, when on they all give of a stunning warm orange glow. One shade inside the bronze mount has a hair line crack which been professionally repaired, its inside the fitting so you cant see it. Otherwise there is not one single chip or brake anywhere. The bronze frames are solid, the flower stems all come up in slightly different angles.
The lamps have been rewired and PAT tested and are perfectly safe. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
