Tiffany Studios New York Favrile Glass Vase
A wonderful study in the magic of the monochromatic, this serene composition by Tiffany Studios New York features a sumptuous, undulating silhouette rendered in a striking cobalt blue. The vase is shaped by a sensitive and subtle graduation of the bright blue hue, with the lightest tones, nearing aqua, found at the widest point of the composition, and a darker, sapphire-blue decorating the outward curved lip of the piece. This careful application of color accentuates the attractive form of the sizable vase, and demonstrates the profound artistry of its maker.

The focus on this particular shade of blue was probably inspired by Tiffany's journeys through Northern Africa, and particularly through Egypt and Morocco. Tiffany, like many young men of his day, was inspired to travel to the region after the publication of Mark Twain's Innocents Abroad, and the visual language of the area would continue to inform his artistic practice for the rest of his life.
