Tiffany Studios New York Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York favrile vase with pulled decoration. The vase has an iridescent background graduating from opalescent through yellow and pink to orange, with dark red swirls. Favrile is the trade name Tiffany gave to his blown art glass. The name derives from the Latin word fabrilis, meaning "made by hand." The technique was developed at Tiffany Furnaces in the mid-1890s using filaments from batches of differently colored glass and working the material while the glass was still molten. Ornamentation was added before the piece had its final shape, so that the decoration became fully integrated into the vessel. The technique was used in both decorative vases and functional pieces such as tableware (bowls, goblets, carafes) and lamp shades. Tiffany intended the favrile designation as a guarantee to current customers and future collectors of the fine quality of these objects.

Tiffany Studios New York Favrile Glass Vase

A Louis Comfort Tiffany favrile glass "Red Hooked" Feather vase, featuring a rich red color enhanced by an iridescent multicolored pulled feather motif that encircles the vase. Favrile is the trade name Tiffany gave to his blown art glass. The name derives from the Latin word fabrilis, meaning "made by hand." The technique was developed at the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company in the mid-1890s using filaments from batches of differently colored glass and working the material while the glass was still molten. Ornamentation was added before the piece had its final shape, so that the decoration became fully integrated into the vessel. The technique was used in both decorative vases and functional pieces such as tableware (bowls, goblets, carafes) and lamp shades.

French Art Nouveau cameo glass vase by Émile Gallé

A French Art Nouveau cameo glass vase by Émile Gallé. This large vase is decorated with wheel carved purple trumpet-creepers and vines against a green background. The flowers and vines climb up the ribbed neck of the vase. The "belle de jour" vase is a flattened baluster form vase with a everted mouth, rounded and polished rim, long slender waisted neck, short globular body, and an applied disk foot. The vase features an intercalaire layer of coarse jade frit in the top three-quarters of the vase and fine indigo frit in the bottom quarter of the vase. To construct the vase, a bubble was blown into the gather, which was cased and parison inflated into a nineteen ribbed dip mold. The stem was subsequently plucked out and twisted counterclockwise. Finally a soffieta was used to open the mouth and a pair of jacks was used to evert the rim. The vase was later cameo cut with exquisite detailing in the venation and the hirsute texture of the leaves. Galle speaks of his encounter with the belle de jour or Convolvulus mauritanicus during his visit to the Borromean islands in Lake Maggiore. As the President of the Nancy Horticultural society, Galle was received with much enthusiasm from the Maggiore horticultural community. Among his guides during his stay was Alessandro Pirrota, the chief gardener of the Borromean islands. At the time of Galle's visit, the number of species and varieties in the gardens reached their height amounting to 3,900. Galle compared the Count's garden to the gardens built by the Jesuit missionaries for the Chinese emperor in the seventeenth century [Qianlong emperor.] As part of his tour of the islands, Galle showed him a series of four grottoes, each of which were dedicated to cultivation of a different flower. The fourth grotto included the Convolvulus Mauritanians. The sight of the Convolvulus growing in the wild was astounding to Galle since in Nancy, they could only grow in cold greenhouses. In this vase Galle has recreated the magical experience of the Maggiore grottoes. Everything from the indigo coloration of the blooms to the crepuscular green tinged atmosphere transport the viewer to this alpine wonder. The morning glory has an added relation to Japanese culture. Commonly featured in the eighteenth century Shigemasa Kitao birds and flowers prints that Galle consulted, the creation of a jade simulant is only fitting for this oriental flower.

Tiffany Studios New York American "Lava" Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York American Art Nouveau "Lava" vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany. A visit to Mount Etna in Sicily during one of its eruptions is said to have inspired Tiffany to capture in glass the force and beauty of the molten volcanic flows and basaltic rock formations that he observed there. The free-form abstract drippings of gold molten glass and the speckled blue and gold ground recreate the naturalistic effects of flowing lava and make this vase an exceptional example of the form. Provenance: The Garden Museum Collection, Matsue, Japan and Important Art Nouveau from the Private Collection of Lloyd & Barbara Macklowe at Sotheby's 1995 This vase is pictured in: "A Selection of 300 Works From Louis C. Tiffany Garden Museum", by Takeo Horiuchi, Japan: Greco Corporation Fine Art Department, 2001, p. 250.

Henri Picq French Art Deco Diamond Emerald and Platinum Necklace-Pendant

A French Art Deco platinum necklace with diamonds and emeralds by Henri Picq. The necklace centers on an emerald-cut diamond with an approximate total weight of 2.50 carats, and baguette, old European-cut and single-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 40.00 carats, H/I color, VS. The pendant has 2 emerald-cut emeralds and 44 calibré-cut emeralds with an approximate total weight of 7.70 carats. The pendant is detachable from the twisted design and barrel-shaped links of the necklace. Henri Picq's workshop, located in the Marais district of Paris, was one of the most important workshops in Paris from the early 20thCentury through the late 1920's. He produced some of the highest quality gem-set platinum jewels of the period. Among other houses, Picq worked for Cartier, becoming their main supplier between 1900 and 1918. These jewels were said to be the finest in Paris, and it was the workshop of Henri Picq that became famed for the quality of this jewelry. Picq was instrumental in the use of novel materials and executed some of Cartier's most avant-gard designs, especially the beautifully-produced Cartier 'Tutti Frutti' jewels, described at the time as 'pierres de couleur' and which continue to endure. He also produced a bracelet designed and exhibited at the revolutionary Paris Exposition Universelle in 1925. Exhibited at "Anything Goes: The Jazz Age" at the Nassau County Museum of Art, 24 March 2018 - 8 July 2018.
