Tiffany Studios New York "Tell el-Amarna" Favrile Glass Vase
This Tiffany Studios New York "Tell el-Amarna" Favrile glass vase, with an iridescent blue body and a brilliant cobalt blue foot and rim, features an Egyptian-inspired grey and white "Tell el-Amarna" motif. The incredible hue of this attractive vase was inspired by the blue glazed pottery found at the "Tell el-Amarna" archeological site in Egypt, which unearthed the forgotten, ancient Egyptian city of Akhetaton in 1887.
