Louis Comfort Tiffany "Sumac" Pottery Vase
Executed in melded earthen hues of green, yellow and coffee tinged with turquoise hues, this "Sumac" vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany offers an exciting interplay of delicate texturing. Done in subtle relief, the titular berries and leaves are barely against a swirling backdrop of carefully layered colors. The thick glazing that covers the piece provides a gently undulating surface that adds to the complexity of the design.
