Tiffany Studios Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York glass vase, featuring translucent and iridescent gold Favrile glass, decorated with abstract stripes and 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.

A vase with a similar motif is pictured in: "Tiffany Favrile Glass and the Quest of Beauty" by Martin Eidelberg, New York: Lillian Nassau LLC, 2007, p. 43.

Tiffany Studios New York Favrile Glass Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York Favrile glass vase with iridescent pulled decoration in the style of a Hopi vase. Louis Comfort Tiffany had more than five hundred Native North American objects, including baskets, implements, and articles of clothing from the Pacific Nothwest on display at his home in Laurelton Hall. Many of these objects were on view in a special oblong room that had once been a bowling alley. Baskets, pottery, and textiles also served as decorative accents throughout the house. This vase pays tribute to Tiffany''s collection. In its color, shape, and decoration it resembles a work of Native American Hopi pottery and shows the influence of this art form on Tiffany''s own work. 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. Tiffany intended the favrile designation as a guarantee to current customers and future collectors of the fine quality of these objects.
