Exceptional C1900 Tiffany Gold Iridescent Favrile Art Glass Oil Lamp & Shade:
EXCEPTIONAL C1900 TIFFANY GOLD IRIDESCENT FAVRILE ART GLASS OIL LAMP & SHADE
This listing is for a circa 1900 Louis Comfort Tiffany favrile art glass oil lamp. This is the largest of this type of lamp made by Tiffany and much scarcer than the "candle lamp configuration this lamp is usually found in). The candlestick measure 9 inches or 23 cm high. The lamp measures 15 1/2 inches or 40 cm high. The shade measures 7 ¼ inches or 18.5 cm in diameter.
The base is favrile art glass and formed as a twisting column. This base holds the favrile Tiffany glass stem.This stem again rather then set up for a candle is hollow and holds oil. On top of this art glass stem is the brass fitter that holds the shade the chimney and the oil lamp wick and wick turnerTopping off the lamp is the iridescent ruffle edge shade. The shade is marked “L.C.T. FAVRILE” and the base of the candlestick is also signed “L.C.T. FAVRILE”.The oil fitter is marked "ACORN P & G CO" and "THE TWILIGHT" This was made for Tiffany by the Pittsburgh Lamp & Glass Company under contract for and made for this lamp.
All of the glass has a strong gold iridescence. The shade is again much scarcer then the shad normally found on either the oil or candle version of this lamp. Rather then just being iridescent, which it is, it is also decorated in what Tiffany called their "King Tut" pattern, beautiful with it's red center iridescence flanked on either side by gold iridescence. The chimney is Tiffany Favrile art glass. This piece of these lamps is most often missing.The lamp, besides being rare, is beautiful.
It is in excellent overall condition. There is a tiny flea bite nick on the ruffled bottom edge of the shade, minor, you need to feel it to "see". There are no damages. The lamp is completely original with all of it's original parts as it was made over 100 years ago by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Please see photos for more on its look and condition. It would be difficult to find a better version of this lamp.
