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.
The flowered domes include many different colors in the shade. The domes are rounded, draping domes, unlike the typical cone shape of a typical shade. Designs include the Dragonfly, Daffodil, Peony, Bamboo, Oriental poppy, Apple Blossom, Poinsettia and so many more. 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.
