Gallery Label: 
Made up of slender, pointed spears of marsh grass and a platform of waterlilies, this table lamp base works particularly well with the shade. It was referred to as "Cat-Tail, Pond Lily base" and priced at $115 in the 1906 Tiffany Studios price list. Both shade and base were discontinued by 1910.
