Louis Comfort Tiffany "Cabbage Leaf" Vase


A charming vase with wonderful, naturalistic patterning and the unusual inclusion of four robust handles, the "Cabbage Leaf" glazed pottery vase by Louis Comfort Tiffany is a wonderful collector's piece. Executed primarily in a buttery yellow with emerald green accents, the vase mimics the appearance of an unfolding kohlrabi cabbage bloom. The tapering handles are bone white in color and stout in form, a lovely visual counterpoint to the delicacy of the cabbage leaves.

Tiffany publicly debuted his pottery at the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition in St. Louis in Tiffany publicly debuted his pottery to widespread acclaim at the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition in St. Louis in 1904. Specifically, Tiffany's pottery, for which there are fewer than 2,000 known created pieces, and surely even fewer in existence today, are celebrated for their astonishing realism and attention to natural forms. Because most Tiffany pottery was made in limited numbers from molds and then finished by hand, each piece can be considered unique.
