This L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile bronze pottery lamp base was one of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s later interests and very few were made before his death. Very large and heavy; it was made of pottery with a bronze finish still unknown as no one ever made it before 2000 years ago. Maybe a few hundred are known to exist and only a handful of lamp bases have been documented. Exemplifying the quality only Tiffany can create; this large handled jug shows 4 Greek nude men two playing the flutes, one with a scepter and the last with a bushel of food. The bronze 3 cluster light fixture is tiffany with the spacer and 4.25 inch wheel being added later. Turn of the last century original sockets unmarked with Weber switches all work, the vase with a rich chocolate brown patina. The bronze stem with Tiffany’s brownish, red, green patina. Ready to add your TSNY leaded glass shade to produce a unique and rare lamp to call your own. Don’t let this one get away because as soon as I find my next Tiffany shade; price will triple.
