Ilana Stollman, Director of Retail Operations for The MTH&M, particularly enjoys these designs:

Tiffany Dragonfly Bookmark – $13.00

The richly hued dragonfly was inspired by a Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) Lamp Screen, Dragonfly shape, c.1910. This leaded glass screen hung from the finial over the lamp shade to provide an additional shield from the harsh light of early electrical light bulbs. The design, comprised of many pieces of glass reveals a subdued, sophisticated design that can be copied, but cannot be imitated.
