Grape hanging shade
Overall (shade height, diameter): 12 1/2 × 30 in. (31.8 × 76.2 cm)
stamped: on metal tag inside shade: "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK"
Leaded glass and bronze "Grape" hanging shade; 30" diameter twelve-sided cone-shaped shade with grape design repeated four times; trellis of "wood" slats rendered in grained and striated brown glass; yellow green background; clusters of red, blue and purple grapes rendered in textured and stippled glass.
This shade blends creativity and craftsmanship in depicting the gradual ripening of grapes on a vine. Beginning small and green, the grapes become larger and more purple as the ripen.
