The Wisteria lamp was one of Tiffany Studios' most popular models. These two lamps (see also N84.130) show dramatically different interpretations. One shade has a refined selection of purple and pale blue flowers (N84.130) while this lamp displays bold contrasts of blue and white clusters. When the demand for this shade exceeded the work capacity of the Tiffany Girls, Clara Driscoll was forced to turn over some orders to the Men's Department at the Corona factory. She made color studies to aid the men in selecting the glass. See also N84.127 for more information about the Wisteria lamp.
