An updated whimsical take on the iconic brass bankers lamps with their green shades, the Dale Tiffany Dragonfly Banker's Lamp combines a bit of history and a touch of art deco. Its history comes from the weary banking accountants who worked the night through, bringing order their ledger books by the light of those green-shaded lamps during the 1800s. One of StylePath's many glass desk lamps, the Dragonfly Lamp has a beautiful verdigris finish tree and leaf base accented with a single colorful dragonfly. The glass favrile glass shade in yellow and green and the ball pull chain complete this Dale Tiffany designed desk lamp.
One of the most enduring antique table lamp styles is the Tiffany table lamp. Louis Comfort Tiffany originally developed Tiffany stained glass beginning in 1878, but today the term Tiffany lamps is used loosely, generally referring to any lamp designed with a shade done in the Tiffany stained glass style. Modern versions may or may not be made entirely of glass.
For example, the John Timberland Mica Tiffany Style Mission Table Lamp is topped by a shade made of glass and mica formed into a beautiful geometric pattern. The shading and pattern of the mica contribute to the unique look of this lighting piece.
Called a Tiffany style lamp, it combines that stained glass look with mission style in the shape of the shade and the design of the wood base. The night light built into the base adds functionality and an extra touch of beauty to the lamp. We think this one would look great in a mission style home office.
