Offered is this exceptionally rare Cypriote glass shade, made by Tiffany Studios, around 1905. Superb iridescence. Though all Tiffany Studios Cypriote glass objects are rare, even rarer are Tiffany's Cypriote glass shades - one seldom comes across a Tiffany Studios Cypriote glass shade in the marketplace (since shades' fitter widths had to hand-made to be of a standard size, in general, it was much more difficult to make shades than vases). This shade is 4 1/2 inches tall and has a standard fitter width of 2 1/8 inches. Except for a tight line at the fitter (see picture), it is in fine condition. Like many Tiffany Studios shades, it is unsigned, but it is guaranteed to have been made by Tiffany Studios. A Tiffany Cypriote glass shade of similar shape (albeit of different decor ) is shown in the January-February, 2005, 'Old House Journal (shown in last two pictures here for your convenience).
