Description

Macklowe Gallery

The radiating, geometric brick design of this exquisite Tiffany Chandelier possesses a quiet dignity. The chain’s base is finely chased to mimic leaf veins. The shade’s top splays unexpectedly into the petals of an angel’s trumpet, a beautiful Brazilian blossom. For this unique model, Tiffany’s craftsmen chose the experimental flame glass technique. Ruby, yellow, and opal glass were slowly melted so that the color would rise like a flame. The shade’s color gently graduates from green to red, evoking a vista of the sun dipping behind a jungle canopy as the angel’s trumpet shows its last bloom.
