Vase (USA), 1918
This is a vase. It was manufactured by Tiffany Studios and the design director was Louis Comfort Tiffany. It is dated 1918 and we acquired it in 1984. Its medium is favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Tiffany, well known for his innovations in stained glass, created “reactive glass,” a material that changed color when reheated. This vase’s translucent, warm gold coloring is likely an example of this glass. The abstract leaf and vine pattern appears to have been layered inside of clear glass, which was then reheated to create a golden hue.
