Description A Tiffany Studios New York "Laburnum" floor lamp. The shade features an upper portion of branches and foliage and cascading flower clusters, ending in an irregular border. The irregular undulating patterned border of the shade, comprised of three long flower clusters each surrounded by three smaller clusters, is one of its distinguishing characteristics. This exquisitely colored shade is decorated with olive green leaves and spotted lemon yellow, oriental yellow, light green and mauve flowers suspended from brown branches. The flowers are set against a brilliant bleu de roi background. Its unique design is attributed to Clara Driscoll, the head of the Tiffany Studios Women's Glass Cutting Department.

Although it is easy to celebrate the exciting particularities of each of Louis Comfort Tiffany's lamps, there is a true uniqueness to the "Laburnum" that should not be overlooked. This lamp is the only in Tiffany's repertoire that was made with this exact shape; carefully executed to reflect the particular sumptuousness and subsequent heavy draping of the Laburnum flower. Tiffany himself was a great lover of this flower, and cultivated them at Laurelton Hall.
