Provenance: From the Estate of William Andrews Clark (1839-1925). Acquired from the descendants of William Andrews Clark (1839-1925) ”The Clark Family, an American Dynasty” New York

As one of the nation’s wealthiest men in the early 1900s, William Andrews Clark’s name is synonymous with the American dream. Both a senator and a magnate of a successful personal empire enveloping multiple industries, Clark’s prosperity and wide-ranging passion for culture drove him to pursue the best of art and culture a passion he shared with his wife and daughters.

Between 1884 and 1888, Clark constructed a 34-room, Tiffany-decorated home on West Granite Street, incorporating the most modern inventions available, in Butte, Montana. This home is now the Copper King Mansion bed-and-breakfast and museum. In 1899 Clark built the Columbia Gardens for the children of Butte. It included flower gardens, a dance pavilion, amusement park, lake, and picnic areas.

He continued to serve as Montana's U.S. Senator until March 3, 1907 whereupon he settled for the rest of his days in a Fifth Avenue mansion in Manhattan. His New York City mansion boasted more than 100 rooms, a 15-foot wide marble fireplace, and was full of an impressive collection of European art and Chinese art Clark's house became known as one of the most lavish in the country. The lamp in question was acquired from the family's sale “The Clark Family, an American Dynasty”.
