When I see this lamp I think Gothic Rock and Punk furniture. This is a lamp you can see by when you are ironing your hair, piercing an ear or tattooing something on a friend. I look at this lamp and I see chesterfield couches, purple velvet cushions, Ramones posters, tartan, black clothes and white skin. For those understand this description the red benita floor lamp range might be just the thing to delight your sight at night.
The lamp is decorative, sculptural and a little Moulin Rouge. The shade features luxurious red flat sheet stained glass with a decorative jewelled rim. The rim is reminiscent of peacocks tail feathers. While the Edwardian frame of the lamp has overtones of vintage art Nouveau in homage to its origins. The foral motifs and swirling lines of cast metal are typical of the style.
People revere Early Tiffany lamps, with most featured in galleries or private collections. To see some early offset Tiffany lamps at Macklowe Gallery New York click here.

Every Tiffany shade is unique and handcrafted. No two shades are exactly the same, so the picture above is indicative of design and shape only.
Stained glass can appear dull without light behind it, so the image shows the globe illuminated.
Art glass, and leadlight is variable. Each individual piece has varied colours and textures and may include bubbles and imperfections, this is typical of the style.
