Electrified lamp with fluted, leaded glass shade. Material of lamp base is patinated bronze. The base is a large, deep oval bowl on a splayed conical foot, in the Etruscan style. Opposing curved bronze handles project upward from the top sides of the base. There is a circular grid pattern of bronze detailing fixed atop the base. There seems a likelihood that shade and base were not originally a pair, and that the base is an antique object to which the shade has been attached. There is no clear evidence this is a Tiffany lamp shade, although anecdotally some at Blithewold refer to it as such. This is described in the Blithewold wooden album (circa 1915) as:"Lamp adapted from a Etruscan urn

Nautilus Shell Lamp. Bronze lily pad shaped base with twining vine stem to hold a genuine shell shade. There is a brass bead pull. The shell shade is cut out on the back side whether by design or accident is not evident. The base has raised and incised veins. Sotheby's describes this as Art Nouveau and dates it circa 1910-. A photograph of the lamp appears in a booklet of "Hand-wrought electric Lamps and Sconces" from the studio of Mrs. Elizabeth E. Burton, State Street, Santa Barbara, California. The lamp was priced at $15.00. George and Marjorie Lyon spent several weeks in Santa Barbara in 1917 after their trip to Wyoming and Hawaii. We believe the lamp was purchased at that time.
