Description


Franklyn C. Shattuck was a founder of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation and a famous American businessman and entrepreneur.  His residence, located at 547 East Wisconsin Avenue in Neenah, Wisconsin, was built in 1893, the same year as the Chicago World's Fair.  Shattuck attended the Fair and was taken by Tiffany’s exhibition.  In 1905, when his residence was undergoing renovation, Shattuck ordered this striking Tiffany jeweled chandelier in a color palette that complemented the gold leaf ceiling in his study.  While more commonly seen as a table lamp, the present lot is a rare example of this jeweled shade design configured as a chandelier with a central Turtle-Back tile.
