Eat your heart out Tiffany: Porcelli Orchid lamp hits $16,100

Porcelli Orchid lamp.jpgA 22-inch leaded glass lamp from the studio of Joseph Porcelli was one of the top selling lots during the second day of James D. Julia’s June 24th, 2011  lamp and glass auction in Fairfield, Maine.
The lamp has a domical shade and carries an all-over design of a variety of orchid blooms in a wide range of colors ranging from red-orange to pink, white and burnished yellow, and rests on a vase shaped decorated base. Both shade and base are finished in a brownish-green patina.

The Porcelli Orchid, the fourth lamp from the studio to be sold by Julia’s since 2009, shared the top lot list with a Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre Malfrey Pot that sold for $33,925.00 and a Dale Chihuly Macchia vase that sold for $16,100.00.  The Porcelli Orchid lamp also sold for a final price of $16,100.00, besting its highest estimate.
