Geometric Tiffany lamps were designed using glass cut into basic shapes such as squares, triangles, diamonds, and rectangles and used only one or two colors. The geometric designs included the Lotus Leaf, Acorn, Spider web, Parasol, Nautilus Seashell, Indian Basket and Turtleback designs. These designs are very symmetrical and were some of Tiffany’s first work. Although a symmetrical design may seem a little boring, Tiffany’s use of color and shapes made the lamps come alive.
In its simplest explanation, a Tiffany lamp is known best for its glass lamp shade of many colors and designs. Although Tiffany table and floor lamp bases sometimes have its own intricate designs, it is best known by the glass shades that adorn the light. The Tiffany lamp name comes from its inventor, Louis Comfort Tiffany, who produced Tiffany lamps from the late 1880’s until 1930. Tiffany made the lamps by soldering pieces of cut, colored glass that he had left over from stained glass windows he had made years earlier. He cut various types and colors of glass according to a pattern that he designed.
