Vase, 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.

At his Corona, New York factory, Tiffany encouraged continuous experimentation in glass color and surface effects. On the top shelf is an example of agateware [1979-84-1] in which a colorful mix of opaque glass simulates the laminated pattern and ridged texture of stone. A wide-mouthed vessel [1966-55-29] shows flame-like decoration and a goblet and vase [1966-55-9-a and 1977-83-1] are covered with plant-like patterning.
