Thanksgiving is upon us and if you are looking for a Tiffany style turkey lamp to decorate your home, you may be out of luck. There have been many turkey accent lamps produced in the past, and some have been in the style of Louis Comfort Tiffany, but few seem to be on the market today. Apparently these novelty lamps are not popular enough to warrant continued production but if you are motivated enough you may find one at a secondhand store or online auction site. Here are four turkey Tiffany lamps you might find:
The first lamp looks like a real turkey and adheres most to the Tiffany style. The lamp base is round and textured like a rock. Atop the rock is a patch of grass through which can be seen the turkey’s feet. The base and the turkey’s neck and head are made of cast resin with a bronze finish. The lamp is 11 inches tall, uses over 100 cuts of glass and features orange, red, burgundy, black and white. This is a classic Tiffany style turkey.
The second turkey lamp incorporates the harvest season with a resin lamp base that includes a corn cob, a pumpkin and apples. The legs and feet of the turkey are also part of the resin base. This Tiffany accent lamp is 11 inches tall and uses over 300 cuts of glass. With green, blue, pink, orange and yellow, this festive turkey would add color and cheer to the Thanksgiving season.
The last two lamps are set in wire frames and would be considered Tiffany style lighting rather than true Tiffany style lamps. They are made of stained glass pieces with wire running over to make them look like more cuts of glass were used, and as if they were foiled and soldered. One lamp stands on metal feet and wears a pilgrim hat. The other has a painted resin base with a pumpkin, gourd, wheat and apples. Both of these turkey novelty lamps feature basic red, orange, yellow and green and stand about 8 inches tall.
If you enjoy holiday decorating you might think about tracking down a turkey Tiffany lamp for your next Thanksgiving celebration. Keep in mind which of these styles suits your home and personality and when you find the perfect turkey, grab it!
