favrile glass, patinated bronze
shade incised L.C.T.
base impressed 4468/TIFFANY STUDIOS/NEW YORK
22¼ in. (56.5 cm) high
Overall in very good condition. The shade displays an unusual blue-silver ground decorated with beautifully articulated green pulled-feather details. The shade presents with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions, and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The bronze candlestick with scattered minor surface scratches and wear, consistent with age and gentle handling. The patina with a few occasional very minor traces of black paint, only visible upon close inspection. The candlestick with some areas of green wax residue. The stem with a very minor bend. The bobeche/shade-fitter appears original and displays with some minor bending to the upper rim.
