Chandelier, Turtleback Tile
At least four Tiffany lamps as well as a Turtleback tile chandelier originally lit the Teak Room, as can be seen in the photo to the left. Turtleback was the name of Tiffany Studios’ rectangular glass tiles featured on the chandelier and the inkwell box nearby. The chandelier’s Moorish-inspired cap lent a note of exoticism that complemented the overall scheme of the room.
