The richly hued dragonfly was inspired by a Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) Lamp Screen, Dragonfly shape, c.1910. This leaded glass screen hung from the finial over the lamp shade to provide an additional shield from the harsh light of early electrical light bulbs. The design, comprised of many pieces of glass reveals a subdued, sophisticated design that can be copied, but cannot be imitated. In the collection of the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida.
Finish: Solid brass, electro-plated with hematite, hand enameled.
