A playful yet elegant timepiece to help pass the time. This ornate watch features a design pattern of the "Drophead Dragonfly", a leaded glass and bronze lampshade made by Tiffany Studios circa 1900–1906, designed by Clara Driscoll, (1861-1944). Watch the seconds fly by as the tiny dragonfly takes flight around the dial.
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) is celebrated today as one of the most influential designers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Information revealed in recently discovered letters suggests that Tiffany designer Clara Driscoll (1861-1944), actually designed most of Tiffany's leaded glass lamps, many of his objets d'art, and supervised the execution of many of his most celebrated leaded windows and mosaics. Her passion for the natural world and refined design sense is unmistakable in the popular dragonfly design featured on this watch.
