Description An original Wisteria Table Lamp produced by Tiffany Studios New York, the leaded glass shade depicting alternating clusters of mottled white and soft green Wisteria blossoms which fall from a series of reticulated bronze branches at the crown, which originally served to ventilate the shade, to form a striking irregular edge. The leaded Tiffany glass shade rests on a bronze "Tree Trunk" table base, the leading and bronze finish in a rich brown patina.

The Wisteria Lamp is one of a limited number of Tiffany lamp designs wherein the overall combination of the shade and base represents a flowering tree or vine. Both the shade and the base of this original Tiffany lamp are signed.

Designed at the turn of the twentieth century by Clara Driscoll, head of the Women's Glass Cutting Department at Tiffany Studios and perhaps the most famous of the "Tiffany Girls," the intricate Wisteria lamp, comprising over 1,000 hand-cut pieces of Tiffany glass, was one of the most popular "Tiffany Lamps" produced by the firm from the outset of production and, priced at $400 in 1906, it was one of the most expensive lamps offered by the firm.

Prized just as highly by today's Tiffany collectors, the Wisteria lamp remains an iconic example of Tiffany's design.
