Vase, ca. 1895
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. 1895 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mouth-blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
This early Tiffany vase is notable for its impressive stature and delicate feathering technique. Since the decoration was added as the form developed, it stretches across the surface where the gaffer expanded the glass. The striations make a swirling pattern complimentary to de Forest’s woodwork and stenciled wallpaper in this room.
It is credited
Gift of Stanley Siegel, from the Stanley Siegel Collection.
