Although many of Louis Comfort Tiffany's lamp shades were interchangeable with different bases, this bamboo shade was made to match its bamboo style base.
Louis Comfort Tiffany was among those who championed lush, sometimes wild-looking displays of varied species in the garden at his Long Island estate, Laurelton Hall. He encouraged his designers to take inspiration from his garden by shipping fresh cuttings almost weekly to his studios. Ohio native Clara Wolcott Driscoll and her team of female designers created floral and leafy patterns for lamps and mosaics that became among the most sought after and commercially successful of Tiffany’s production.
