Tiffany Studios New York Ruffled Rim Flower Form Glass Vase


A beautifully hued floriform vase by Tiffany Studios, this delicate piece is so brilliantly colored and dynamically formed as to provide a strength of design that is at ravishing odds with the daintiness of the work's composition. A rippling upper edge in milky glass allows for peeks of the mauve iridescence within the vase. The ruffled rim features a delicate web of craquelure. Kelly green glass forms striations throughout the vase's body and stem, and the base features concentric rings of red, gold and gossamer.

Favrile glass vases in the shapes of stylized flowers were among the earliest creations of the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company, forerunner of Tiffany Studios. Initial examples of this technique date from approximately 1894, although later pieces show greater refinement. Flower forms have great variety in stem length and rim shape.
