Summary This book reveals that the design of many Tiffany lamps was in fact the work of the Ohio-born Clara Driscoll (1861-1944). Clara directed a staff of gifted but unsung women, known as the "Tiffany Girls," who labored behind the scenes in the creation of some of Tiffany's most sumptuous objects. Driscoll generated the designs of masterpieces such as the Wisteria, Dragonfly, and Peony lamps; she and her staff executed many of the most celebrated leaded-glass windows, mosaics, and small luxury goods that Tiffany Studios marketed through 1909. At the heart of A New Light on Tiffany are Clara Driscoll's letters, only recently rediscovered, which constitute the only first-person account of the day-to-day activities at Tiffany Studios. -- Dust Jacket
