The 20″ Poppy is one of Tiffany Studios’ most successful lamp patterns. Ascending from a horizontal band of leaves, the flowers and buds rise up on slender stems represented by the vertical lead lines to fill the upper two thirds of the shade. The addition of metal filigree overlays on the flower centers and leaves give the shade added depth.
A rich amber/orange glass tinged with red and blue was chosen for the background of the shade. The flowers are a combination of reds, deep fuchsia pinks, and purples. Hints of teal in the flower centers, leaves and buds enhance the lush tones of the shade, while the olive green chosen for the borders grounds the design. The shade is shown on the elegant Library base (23.5″ tall). This lamp is in a local collection.
