ALAMEDA, Calif. — Michaan’s Auctions of Alameda California is featuring a floral bouquet leaded glass lamp from the studio of Joseph Porcelli in their upcoming 20th Century Decorative Arts Auction to be held Nov. 8, 2010, at 1 p.m.

The 20-inch lamp, which rests on a bronze and metal vase-shaped base, includes renderings of roses, trumpet lilies, crocus, gloxinia, azalea, tulips and campanulas in a variety of strong colors, surrounded by a bed of green foliage and a background of midnight blue art glass.
