Tiffany Studios New York Wire Mesh Poppy Table Lamp $395,000>
Macklowe Gallery

The brilliantly colored blooms of Tiffany’s Poppy Lamp emits a dreamy aura. A background of striated turquoise and sienna glass evoke the rising smoke and intoxicating scent of opium poppies. At the close of the 19th century, the use of opium became commonplace for those seeking to explore their subconscious. Tiffany decorated his smoking room with a 14-foot painting of an opium smoker’s dream. It depicted a Japanese bearded man smoking opium while a horde of monsters loomed, a testament to the drug’s alluring danger.
