Lamp, Daffodil, 1899–1910

This is a Lamp. It was overseen (as design director) by Louis Comfort Tiffany and produced by Tiffany & Co..

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from The Collection of Richard H. Driehaus, Chicago as part of Passion for the Exotic: Louis Comfort Tiffany and Lockwood de Forest.

It is dated 1899–1910. Its medium is cast bronze, mold-blown favrile glass.

In the late nineteenth century as power increasingly reached American households, Tiffany added electrifiedtable lamps to his production line. Bases were worked in the metal foundry while in the workshop artisans assembled leaded-glass shades on wooden forms indicating thearrangement of the glass. This shade features daffodils cascading toward a geometric border.

It is credited The Collection of Richard H. Driehaus, Chicago.
