TIFFANY STUDIOS 22" BANDED DOGWOOD FLORAL TABLE LAMP ON AMERICAN INDIAN BRONZE BASE. The leaded glass shade shows a geometric pattern throughout which is created by green and white striated glass cut to small quadrangular pieces. This pattern is shown in 8 rows from the aperture of the shade and 3 rows from the bottom rim. The dogwood floral pattern is featured in a banded border, stretching into the 8th geometric row from the top and the 3rd geometric row from the bottom. Each of the flowers consists of 4 pieces of opaque mottled glass depicting the petals and a 5th yellow piece in the centers. Surrounding the flowers within this border are large green leaves, showing some gray striations, and brown translucent branches, visible in 3 places. The aperture of the shade is 5" in diameter and the shade is 8.5" high. The lower rim, which is 22" in diameter, is edged with a ½" heavy bronze border. The top of the lamp shows a reticulated spun bronze heat cap with a teardrop finial, which sits over the shade. The underside shows 4 reinforcement ribs running from the border to the aperture and is also signed on the metal tag "Tiffany Studio's New York". The bronze base is in the American Indian pattern; it shows a very nice dark brown patina. The platform of the base is 11.5" in diameter. It is molded with squares and rectangles in a linear pattern.
