Vase (USA), ca. 1900
This is a Vase. It was overseen (as design director) by Louis Comfort Tiffany and produced by Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company. It is dated ca. 1900 and we acquired it in 1966. Its medium is mold-blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
This vase’s pinched shape and plant-like ribs, made more dramatic by its iridescent surface, are representative of the inventiveness of Tiffany’s early work in glass. The gourd shape references a form typical in ancient glass, which Tiffany collected and regularly used for design inspiration in various media.
It is credited
Bequest of Joseph L. Morris.
