Tiffany Studios New York Bronze and Green Glass Inkwell


Among the most visually alluring and technically excellent of all Tiffany Studios New York's desk accessories, the exciting design for this refined but robustly rounded inkwell features green blown glass in pinched triangular forms that appear to dance in perfectly coordinated movement around the circumference of the piece. The negative space between the blown green glass appears in the form of stylized flowers with minimalist linear accents in patinated bronze.

Though smaller in physical scale, Louis Comfort Tiffany's desk accessories are prized by collectors of the great maker, as they were the space in which he and his designers took the most artistic liberties, experimented most freely, and demonstrated their visions most resolutely.
