Catalogue Note

This exceptional counter-balance lamp is distinguished by its dazzling blue coloration. The decorated blown favrile glass shade is executed in a beautiful deep sapphire hue, which is enhanced with strong and luminous iridescence displaying a range of jewel tones. Inset with complementary blue iridized "Turtle-Back" tiles, the counter-weight is a superb and beautifully conceived visual element that brings cohesion to the unit, further distinguishing this lamp for its rarity and superlative quality.
