condition

Overall very good condition. This lamp is distinguished by its superb, exuberant glass selection. The lamp is comprised by a varied selection of striated, mottled, rippled and translucent glass, imparting the shade with strong visual depth and dynamism. The top of the shade features background glass tiles in an array of blues, including cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, and bright sky blue. The design descends down the shade to the trumpet creeper blossoms, which display a palette of fiery red-orange and yellow, set against a background of translucent fuschia, violet, and indigo glass and accented by bright green leaves. The shade and base are both impressed with the firm's production number, 28277, reinforcing that both components originated together from the time of manufacture. The shade with approximately 35 hairline cracks dispersed throughout, stable, which is a relatively low number in proportion to the vast number of glass tiles which were required to execute this complex and monumental shade. The shade with some extremely light surface soiling concentrated to the contours adjacent to the leadlines. The top bronze armature of the shade and lower branching is finely cast and displays a rich brown patina. With some light surface soiling to the recessed contours of the top reticulated shade armature and minor traces of oxidation throughout. The bronze branching incorporated throughout the top register of the shade is highly sculptural and tactile, and adds great visual interest and dimensionality to the lamp. The "Tree" base displays a rich brown patina and sculptural casting. The patinated surfaces of the base with some occasional light surface scratches, abrasions and gentle rubbing, and with some light surface soiling and oxidation to the recessed contours of the branching consistent with age and gentle use. The base retains its original bronze decorative switch, which is fully functional as a two-way switch. All four electrical sockets appear to be original and undisturbed. A masterful example of this impressive model, displaying the highest artistry of Tiffany's lamp production. The richness and radiance of this lamp's glass selection and coloration is truly mesmerizing when experienced in person.
