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.
