Dogwood Band Library Lamp

Dogwood Band Library Lamp

ca. 1905    

ORIGINAL COLLECTION

Not all of Tiffany’s lampshades are exuberant and colorful. Some, like this Dogwood, feature a monochrome, geometric background decorated only with a restrained frieze of flowers. The white, uniform dogwoods seen here are a stark contrast to the bright, showy blossoms featured in most of Tiffany’s other lamps.
