Our splendid bookmark design was adapted from the Museum's Clematis Floor Lamp made by Tiffany Studios and designed by Clara Driscoll. The Lamp's cone-shaped shade depicts blue clematis flowers in full bloom, with flower petals and leaves rendered in colorful mottled and rippled glass.
With shimmering veils of leaded glass lamps and windows, Louis C. Tiffany and his designers created a revolutionary design aesthetic that brought the beauty of the natural world into the home. The remarkable story of Clara Driscoll, manager of the women laboring in Tiffany Studios (the Tiffany Girls) was revealed in the New-York Historical Society's groundbreaking exhibition, A New Light on Tiffany. Their designs are on view and celebrated in the Museum's Gallery of Tiffany Lamps; a stunning, immersive display space for New-York Historical's exceptional Tiffany collection.
