Dragonfly Library Lamp
This Library Lamp is one of eleven 22-inch Dragonfly shades in Dr. Neustadt’s collection. The gold patina on this shade and base was considered a special order by Tiffany Studios and cost an additional 25% of the purchase price. The gilded lead lines on this shade were likely intended to dramatize the golden color of the glass.
