Exceptional Tiffany Studios floor lamp shines at $150,000 at Heritage Auctions
Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Patinated Bronze Nasturtium Lattice Floor Lamp, circa 1910.

DALLAS, TX.- A stunning Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Patinated Bronze Nasturtium Lattice Floor Lamp, circa 1910 reached $150,000 and a unique Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass Lily Window sold for $143,750 Thursday in Heritage Auctions' Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Including Art Deco & Art Nouveau Auction, which reached $1,266,549 in total sales.

"These strong results cast a light on the enduring demand for elite Tiffany Studios glass, " Heritage Auctions Senior Vice President of Special Collections Nick Dawes said. "Offering extraordinary items like these only furthers Heritage Auctions' ascent as an important destination for Art Glass collectors."

"I have been doing business with Heritage Auctions for the past 21 years, but this was my most significant consignment," said the consignor of both of the top lots in the sale, who wishes to remain anonymous. "I have always found them to be transparent, honest and accessible. Consignment Director Samantha Robinson and the entire team worked tirelessly to photograph, catalogue, present and sell the consignment, and their efforts are evident in the results that exceeded my expectations."

Originally produced as a hanging shade, the Nasturtium Lattice Floor Lamp was presented in the sale on a patinated junior floor base, merging rigid architectural and sinuous natural elements. This shade captures the different stages of the nasturtium vine's development from a single stem accented by a single butter-yellow flower to mature blossoms in assorted colors. This example stands apart from others in this design due to the variety and vibrancy of the glass selection from Tiffany Studios' vast repertoire.

While the original site of installation is unknown, the Lily window's prominent use of white Easter lilies indicates that it may have been produced, more than a century ago, as a memorial. The foreground is dominated by a field of lilies, with verdant stems and leaves and blooms viewed from several perspectives and rendered in milky opalescent glass, including more than two dozen pieces of drapery glass that lend three-dimensionality. Beyond the field lies an undulating horizon below a vast sky marbled with bright blue and pale pink and yellow. Plating, a technique of layering multiple pieces of glass, was used to execute the series of hills that recede into the distance, thereby achieving depth of field. The entire scene is framed by an opalescent glass architectural structure. It features a decorative frieze with a band of jeweled glass above dentil molding achieved through alternating opalescent and blue glass pieces. The frieze is held aloft by a pair of Ionic columns atop a foundation accented by blocks outlined in ripple glass.

The top lot was one of three Tiffany lamps that fared exceptionally well in the event, in which a Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Patinated Bronze Black Eyed Susan Ceiling Lamp, circa 1910 nearly doubled its low pre-auction estimate when it sold for $57,500, followed closely by a Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Patinated Bronze Daffodil Table Lamp, circa 1910 at $52,500.

A George Woodall for Thomas Webb & Sons Cameo Glass Vase, circa 1890 nearly doubled its high pre-auction estimate when it reached $35,000, while a Rare Early R. Lalique Molded Glass Choeur des Anges Panel in Original Bronze Frame, circa 1905 more than quadrupled its high pre-auction estimate when it drew a winning bid of $32,500.

Other top lots included, but were not limited to:

• A Rookwood Pottery Standard Glaze Chrysanthemum Vase Decorated by Kataro Shirayamadani, 1903: $22,500

• A Baccarat Glass Mille Nuits Twelve-Light Chandelier, late 20th-early 21st century: $20,000

• Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Divan Japonais, 1893: $20,000

• A Large Royal Doulton Sung Flambé Alchemist Vase Designed by Charles Noke, circa 1920: $17,500
