Capucina Fournier Lamps Design March 26, 2018 16:50:15
Louis Comfort Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany of Tiffany and Co. the jewelry store and fine merchandise. Instead of following in his father’s footsteps Louis sought a different career in various arts. In the 1880s Tiffany began to design the first of the Tiffany Lamps. The first of the Tiffany Lamps were very geometric using basic shapes such as squares triangles and circles in their mosaic designs.
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.
