The dragonfly shade, one of Tiffany Studios' most popular models, was designed by Clara Driscoll around 1899. Tiffany employed many skilled women, who were responsible for some of his most successful shade designs. Clara Driscoll began as a Tiffany designer in 1887, and by 1904 she was among the highest-paid women in the United States. The base is the Spun Oval Base designed c. 1900-1906.
