Footed Bowl (USA)

This is a Footed bowl. It was overseen (as design director) by Louis Comfort Tiffany and produced by Tiffany Studios. It is dated 1913–16 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mold-blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This grouping shows off a wide range of visual effects and glass-blowing techniques. The aquamarine footed bowl [1975-32-14] was made by the paperweight technique in which an outer layer of heavy clear glass surrounds the water lilies to enlarge their imagery and give a blurry underwater effect. Green glass has been blown directly into the candlestick’s bronze cage [1975-32-12] to give the form dynamic dimension. Meanwhile the two small glass vessels [1966-55-15 and 1978-177-1] display Tiffany’s experimentation with marbleized glass.

This object was donated by Stanley Siegel. It is credited Gift of Stanley Siegel, from the Stanley Siegel Collection.
