Louis Comfort Tiffany "Water Lilies and Frogs" Coupe
A "Water Lilies and Frogs" pottery coupe by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Created in the rough shape of a budding water lily, this coupe features a splayed, disc shaped base decorated with overlapping and wonderfully detailed water lily pads. The body of the vase, which serves as its narrowest point, is striated with the many stems of the plants, while the uppermost tier of the composition mimics the appearance of the water lily blooms. Replete with a scalloped uppermost border and adorned with the likenesses of frogs throughout, the charming composition, which is done in hues of only golden yellow and bone white, offers a fantastical understanding of a watery landscape.
