Iconic Dragonfly Lamp

The Tiffany dragonfly lamp is one of the most iconic lamps produced during the heyday of the Tiffany Studios. It’s probably the first image that pops into your head when somebody mentions Tiffany lamps. The original version was decorated with large dragonflies with blue bodies, purple wings, and red eyes. The background was a mix of blue-green and yellow. The head of the dragonfly hangs down with the wings forming a scalloped edge on the lampshade.

The pattern has been replicated utilizing different colors. In my own home I have a dragonfly Tiffany table lamp. The piece is a compilation of red, amber, and brown as the predominant colors. Thanks to modern technology, the lamp sheds enough light to serve as a desk light or reading nook light.
