Tiffany Bronze “Sassafras” Candlesticks

A pair of Tiffany Studios New York patinated bronze “Saxifrage” candlesticks. Tiffany drew artistic inspiration from the humblest species of meadow plants, such as the WIld Carrot, Queen Anne’s Lace and in this instance an herb which grows in the clefts of rocks. Here, the plant’s seed pods have been fashioned with great delicacy into a candle bobeche supported by a slender stalk rising from a symmetrical band of leaves that fan out to form the foot. A similar candlestick is pictured in: “Tiffany Lamps and Metalware - An Illustrated Reference to over 2000 Models”, by Alastair Duncan, Antique Collectors’ Club, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 2007, p. 387, plate 1579 (far right, front row).

“Tyler” Tiffany Lamp

A rare and historically significant Tiffany Studios New York glass and bronze “Tyler” lamp, the shade featuring an iridescent blue glass decorative pattern on a richly mottled green and yellow glass background.

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.

Tiffany Studios Favrile Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York glass vase, featuring orange and golden Favrile glass decorated with an iridescent swirl design. 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 similar decoration is pictured in: “The Tiffany Collection of the Chrysler Museum at Norfolk” by Paul E. Doros, Richmond, VA: W. M. Brown & son, Inc., 1978, p. 135, cat. no. 176.

Tiffany Studios “Cypriote” Miniature Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York glass “Cypriote” vase, featuring a mottled and multi-textured lava-like finish, with an uneven border. Cypriote is a textured glass achieved at Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company by rolling glass over a marble or iron surface covered with pulverized bits of the same glass. Its iridescence and bubbles resembled the decomposed surface of Roman glass discovered during archeological explorations on the island of Cyprus, hence its name. Lava glass evolved from Cypriote glass by using thicker, brighter glass and dripping golden glass irregularly over the surface.

Blue Favrile Glass Vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany

A Tiffany Studios New York iridescent blue Favrile glass vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany. 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 Tobacco Box

A Tiffany Studios New York carved wood, Favrile glass and bronze tobacco box by Louis Comfort Tiffany. This rare and meticulously crafted tobacco box is one of the designs included in Tiffany Studios’ elite line of wooden “Fancy Goods”. The output of these carved wooden humidors, cigarette boxes and card cases was limited to a small number and they were produced for only a short period of time. First offered through Tiffany and Company, this stunningly naturalistic humidor, which is believed to have been carved from a single piece of wood by Joseph Briggs, was featured in Tiffany & Company’s Blue Books from 1906 to 1912. The two Favrile glass scarabs reflect a fascination with Ancient Egypt that began in the 1860s with the first archaeological explorations and continued through the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. The scarab represented the Egyptian sun god Khepri and was a symbol of resurrection. The ancient Egyptians placed scarabs on mummies for good luck and protection against evil as they made their journey to the next world. This box is one of seven known signed examples, three of which are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York, the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond, Virginia, and the Louis C. Tiffany Garden Museum, Japan. Literature: Alastair Duncan, Fin de Siècle Masterpieces from the Silverman Collection, Abbeville Press Publishers, New York, 1989, p. 65 for an illustration of the model.

"Cherry Blossom" Tiffany Lamp

A Tiffany Studios New York "Cherry Blossom"* glass and bronze table lamp. The shade features green branches with pink and white cherry blossoms. The tonality of the leaves ranges from dense, deep greens at the crown to lighter greens below. Much of the leaf glass is fibrillated, thus producing a delicate, verdant radiance. The predominantly white blossoms are lightest at the irregular lower border. Higher up, they are interspersed with pink flowers which proliferate as they approach the crown. The darker pink, red-speckled petals are made of a vividly transparent glass which is either knobby or rippled in texture. The flower centers are a transparent yellow. The shade sits atop a patinated bronze tree trunk base and is specially designed to fit it. The patinated bronze openwork crown lattice at the top of the shade resembles tree branches and is a direct extension of the base. Tiffany loved flowering trees. Flowering cherry trees grew on the grounds of his Laurelton Hall estate and appear as a motif in many of his windows and lamps. The spreading “Cherry Blossom” lamp is the most stunning and realistic tree shape that Tiffany ever produced. Its intricacy and delicacy imbue the piece with radiant beauty and give it marked significance within the world of Tiffany lamps. It is pictured in numerous publications on Tiffany including: “The Lamps of Tiffany Studios” by William Feldstein, Jr. and Alastair Duncan, P. 108-109. “Louis C.Tiffany’s Glass, Bronzes, & Lamps: A Complete Collector’s Guide”, by Robert Koch, P. 132, Plate 209. “Louis C.

Tiffany Studios Favrile Vase

A Tiffany Studios New York iridescent decorated gold pinched Favrile glass vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany. 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.
