The present lamp is a testimony Tiffany Studios’ mastery of their two primary mediums: glass and bronze. The “Arrowhead” shade depicts a conventionalized scheme of soft white arrowhead blossoms and vibrant emerald leaves, which is accented by two lower geometric registers of deep sapphire rippled glass with subtle yellow striations. The superb glass selection captures the vibrancy and variety of the plant seen in nature. Thematically, the motif of the arrowhead flower—a wetland plant—pairs beautifully with the “Cattail Pond Lily” base. Compared to the shade, the expertly cast bronze base is more directly representational: the layered, softly undulating lily pads give rise to a bouquet of tall marsh grass. Discontinued by 1910, this rare base model is exemplary of the highly artistic metalwork that Tiffany Studios created at the pinnacle of the firm’s production. As a unit, the shade and base together create a lyrical, picturesque landscape, showcasing Tiffany’s embrace of nature as his muse and making tangible the beauty of flora in glass and bronze.
