Tiffany Studios often used water themes for lamps and windows, and one of their most popular shade patterns is the 20″ Waterlily. Lily pads float on the surface of a tranquil summer pond while flowers and buds playfully interact across the shade. For this shade, the water glass is a brilliant shining blue tinged with deep purple. Set against this shimmering backdrop are white flowers blushed with pink and red. Lively green tones enliven the pads while an emerald green rippled glass border plays off the deeper color tones towards the bottom of the shade. The shade is shown on the intricately detailed Cattail base. This lamp was commissioned by a California client.
