Tiffany Studios New York Enameled Copper Covered Box
This enameled copper covered box, by Louis Comfort Tiffany, features an intricate design of vines with tendrils culminating in paisleys, filled with deep blue enamel, almost replicating a Henna pattern. It is an example of Indian patterns that influenced Louis Comfort Tiffany's work. In the late 1870s, Tiffany's partnership with Lockwood de Forest resulted in an introduction of East Indian craft motifs that contributed to their revival within the context of Gilded Age America. This covered box is an example of such influence, with its gold background and highlights of blue enamel paisleys.
