In 1899, Tiffany Studios introduced three of its most popular lamp designs, including the Nautilus. Launched during an Art Nouveau exhibition in London, it is one of the earliest lamps Tiffany ever made. The Nautilus lamp had several variations, including one with a genuine nautilus-shell shade and another with a leaded glass shade. Louis A. Gudebrod designed a bronze base shaped like a mermaid to match with the Nautilus’ style. Featured in the upcoming Early 20th Century Design sale, presented by Hindman, is a mermaid base Nautilus table lamp by Tiffany Studios. A nautilus shell forms this lamp’s shade.
Interested furniture collectors can consider an available writing desk by Louis Majorelle. A French designer and decorator, Majorelle created Art Nouveau furniture with organic curves and gilt ornamentation. The available walnut desk has deeply carved legs and gilt bronze drawer pulls. Rounding out the collection are several decorative pieces, including an acid-etched landscape vase by Emile Galle and a bone marble statue, titled Woman with Flowers, by Joe Descomps.
