Tiffany Studios table lamp with "Crocus" pattern domed leaded glass shade in yellow, cream and green leaded glass, unsigned, together with a # D805 Tiffany Studios lamp base having an onion bulb design base above four scrolled feet. Fitted with a 3 socket light cluster and signed on the base "Tiffany Studios New York D805" together with Tiffany monogram stamp. Shade: 6 1/2" H x 16" dia. Base: 18" H. American, circa 1910. Provenance: the estate of Edith (Edie) M. Bass, Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from her parents, Walter Paul McBride and Claire Childs of Lake Forest, Illinois. The lamp likely originally belonged to Mrs. Bass's grandfather, C. Frederick Childs (1875-1955), founder of the C.F. Childs & Co. Securities Co. Mr. Childs was the first dealer of U.S. Government Securities. His offices in Chicago and New York were across the street from the Federal Reserve in each city and his trading office was located at One Wall Street. Edie McBride Bass attended Miss Porter's School and graduated from Vassar. She married Jack Maddin Bass of Nashville, Tennessee, whose father owned J.M. Bass and Co., one Nashville's first securities firms. Edie served numerous charitable institutions in Nashville. She was a Lifetime Trustee of Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and the Ensworth School, and served on the Board of Miss Porter's School. She was a driving force in establishing fund raising for the Swan Ball, The Land Trust of Tennessee, and the M.S. Society. Additional items from her estate will be offered in our January auction. Condition: Shade overall good condition with no apparent breaks. Base with nice old green brown patina. Heat cap is a replacement. Functional at time of inspection (see photos of illuminated lamp).
