Tiffany Studios New York Flower Form Favrile Glass Vase

$10,500

This Tiffany Studios New York flower form Favrile glass vase is uniquely shaped roughly in the silhouette of a curled flower not yet in bloom, with a rounded, rippled rim. The vase features a green pulled-feather decoration on a cream ground, each feather-pull elegantly mimicking the natural veining and variation of hues that would be found on a young leaf or stem. The vase has an opalescent pink goblet-type top and a swirling iridescent pink foot.

Favrile glass vases in the shapes of stylized flowers were among the earliest creations of Louis Comfort Tiffany for the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company, forerunner of Tiffany Studios New York. Initial examples of this technique date from approximately 1894, although later Tiffany pieces show greater refinement. Flower forms in his total oeuvre have a great deal of variety in stem length and rim shape.
