Tiffany Studios New York Favrile Glass "Agate" Vase


Louis Comfort Tiffany's passion for nature is particularly reflected in this Tiffany Studios New York "Agate" Favrile glass vase; the pebbles and stones that washed up on the shores of Long Island and New England served as Tiffany's inspiration for glass objects like the one displayed here, that imitates cut agate. The intent was to suggest the striations found in veined stones, which were usually quite opaque.
