Identifying Glass Described in Movies by Jack Hartwein-Sanchez
Hello Jack et al that enjoy the Turner Classic Movies,
Sabrina, 1955: In the early part of the movie, Audrey Hepburn is sitting at her writing table in Paris, there is a Tiffany lamp with prisms lighting her work.
The shade is either a Tiffany Studios IVY VINE or a Bigalow & Kennard of the same model type. The prisms on the supporting ring is unknown as is the pottery/ceramic lamp base.
The Apartment, 1960: Jack Lemmons apartment has three leaded glass lamps. Even though it is a black and white film I can tell two are Tiffany lamps, one being a daffodil lamp. Im not certain who made the third one.
The second Tiffany lamp is the SPIDER shade on the Inverted Mushroom Base. The third lamp by the sofa is a banded floral shade of unknown name by the Unique lamp and Glass Co. of Brooklyn
