Louis Comfort Tiffany At Tiffany & Co
Author: John Loring
Celebrated for his Art Nouveau stained-glass interpretations of birds, insects, fruits and flowers, Louis Comfort Tiffany was the foremost American designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His enormous influence on his father's famed company, however, has been largely obscured. In this illustrated volume, Tiffany & Co design director John Loring puts into perspective the mutually beneficial bonds between "LCT" and the family firm. The book includes 350 colour images of the jewellery, enamels, blown glass, ceramics, desk accessories and other objets d'art created by LCT during his 16-year tenure as the company's design director, as well as luxury goods produced in his own studios - but in fact financed and retailed by the family company.
