Derived from the Old English word “Fabrile” meaning hand made, Tiffany adjusted the term to the more elegant sounding “favrile.” Patented by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1894 after years of experimentation, favrile glass is highly iridescent due to the embedded coloring. The term was used generally by Tiffany Studios to mark their various products, from art and stained glass to ceramics, to denote a product of the highest quality created by hand by the company’s craftspeople.
