Flowered Cones - Similar to the flowered domes the flowered cone lamps were symmetrical with the floral designs and were a bit more like a typical cone-shaped shade. Tiffany’s use of color design and shapes set his flowered cones far apart from any typical shade of the day. The Dragonfly Oriental poppy and the Peony designs were also made using the cone design. The Lily Pad Grape Water Lily and Arrowroot were exclusively made in the cone design.
For those who loved colored glass Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds lines and bubbles that occur in the glass which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
