DescriptionTIFFANY-STYLE PETRIFIED WOOD LAMP SHADE
The shade of this beautifully decorative lamp is fashioned from small segments of thinly sliced petrified wood, joined in Tiffany style via the copperfoil technique. Each piece has been painstakingly sliced and polished to a translucent thinness before being mounted in stained-glass-like latticework. The wood segments display a beautiful range of colors and patterns from green and red to purple and cream, and when illuminated they take on a strikingly beautiful fiery glow, warm and soothing. The shade is raised on a brass mount set into a natural piece of gnarled (unpetrified) wood, inset with two highly polished little ledges of flame mahogany branch section. The whole piece is mounted on a marble base and stands 26 inches high.
