Please use right scroll to view additional photo(s).
For Sale is a leaded glass shade made in the manner of Tiffany Studios mounted on an Original bronze table lamp made by Tiffany Studios, New York. This Style of base is called a "Large Stick" in its most sought after naturally aged Acid Etched Dore' (Gold) Patina. This base came with a telescoping riser to raise and lower a Fabric or Linenfold shade. I have used a Replica riser for use with this Tiffany Style Leaded Glass Shade. I will include both risers in the purchase of this complete lamp. The bronze table lamp with leaded shade is large as it stands 26 3/4" tall to the top of the cap and the shade has a diameter of 20". The foot of the base has a diameter of 11 1/2".
The shade is a museum quality copy of Tiffany Studio's 20" Waterlily "Pond Lily" cone shade. This shade displays a beautiful blue confetti background glass that simulates water. When the shade is lit it looks like you are looking at a Pond with Waterlilies everywhere. The Waterlily flowers are all different and are not monotone. They all have character as they would in nature. The mottled Lily Pads also have a very realistic appearance with wonderful mottling. The shade is finished in a natural Brown to Green patina to compliment this Original Tiffany Base just fine. The top aperture has a bronze ring and the bottom of the shade is finished with a bronze rim, just as Tiffany Studios did.
The Bronze Table lamp displays wonderful and rich dark acid etched Patina. This is one of the most desirable finishes in the Tiffany Patina's. It has nice small snow flakes etched into the metal. The base displays a very nice arts and crafts style of simplicity. It has a slender column with an irregular bottom foot. It is a 2 part casting that sits on 4 feet molded into the bottom platform. The base has 4 lighting sockets that have pull chains. The interiors appear to be all original with the sockets having 2 satellite round pulls and the other 2 having round pulls. It my belief the round pulls were changed at a later date but they are from the same period. Tiffany bought these interior parts and did not make them. Each socket is signed with "Bryant 250 V Pat'd Nov 26 1907 Made in the USA". The finial and riser are original to the base as the riser has the same acid etched patina as the rest of the base has.
This Large Stick Base is considered to be in excellent condition. There are no cracks, nicks or dings to the base or shade. There is a few light round spots in the base and these are pictured. They are not obtrusive as you can see. The base is signed on the underside base plate with the "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed mark above the lamp cord hole with the model number "531" impressed just under the hole. There are also the numbers "12960" lightly scratched to the left side of the hole and more than likely was a special order number. The base has been rewired with gold rayon antique style lamp cord and it still retains its original antique plug. The plug has a small piece out of it and this is pictured as well.
This is a quality Original Tiffany Studios Large Bronze Stick Base with a Tiffany Contemporary Unsigned 20" Waterlily shade. The Base is "Guaranteed Original Tiffany Studios" and is very early based on the socket markings. I would say this Tiffany Studios lamp base was made, Circa 1907-1909.The Shade was made Circa 2013. If this combination were 100% Original you would be looking at $200,000-$250,00. Most advanced collectors will never get the chance to own an Original Tiffany Studios 20" Water Lily Table Lamp. In my opinion this lamp would be the next best choice as it looks just like an original. I will attach a link to the most recent Tiffany Studios 20" Waterlily Lamp and what this sold for below:
