Overall: 8 1/4 x 20 in. ( 21 x 50.8 cm )
stamped: on metal tag inside shade: "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 1495-12"
Leaded glass and bronze reproduction Tiffany "Dragonfly" lampshade; 20" diameter cone-shaped shade with seven dragonflies repeated around circumference of shade; dragonfly bodies and eyes are green and wings are mottled orange covered with metal filigree; background of blue-green glass; three blue-green jewels in each repeated section; three geometric rows at bottom of apron, two blue with bright orange between.
The uncharacteristic color scheme of this shade, particularly the bright blue used in the border, is just one clue that this is not a product of Tiffany Studios. As in this example, a Tiffany Studios signature tag is not necessarily proof of authenticity.
