Wisteria Purple Blue Flowers Stained Glass Lamp by Tiffany 25H -
The Tiffany Wisteria Lamp is one of the most famous designs. The artistry and technical achievement can be attested by the naturalistic rendering of the flowers and vines. The openwork crown edge at the top simulated twisting vines, while the irregular lower border looks like clusters of unopened wisteria blossoms. As one of the most complex Tiffany lamp designs, each original wisteria lampshade consisted of more than 1,000 pieces of glass.
Our reproduction of the Tiffany Wisteria Lamp illustrates the beauty of this flower in shades of blue, green and purple. The wisteria plant seems to drape over the top forming the glass lampshade. Made with individual pieces of glass, this reproduction pays homage to the original design which was made out of individual glass pieces. The lamp stand replicates the wisteria flowers and vines.
Shade is made from glass pieces. Stem is made from resin with metal. Draw string on / off switch. Large size at 25"H including shade. Shad is 12.5" diameter. Wisteria pattern continues on all sides. Light bulbs not included.

About Tiffany and the Tiffany Lamps: By the beginning of the 20th century, Louis Comfort Tiffanys name was synonymous with the stunning pieces of art he created out of stained glass. The Tiffany lamp, first produced in 1895, became a decorative arts milestone as it fused together design, craftsmanship and functionality. Only recently was it discovered that the creative force behind these lamps was not Tiffany but actually one of his employees named Clara Driscoll. As the director, designer and crafter of the Tiffany lamps, she not only found an innovative use for the leftover glass from the firms stained glass window production but also created one of the most iconic objects in the history of American decorative art.
