The Favrile glass technique was developed at the Tiffany Glass & Decorating Company in the mid-1890s, using filaments from batches of differently colored glass and working the material while the glass was still molten. Ornamentation was added before the piece had its final shape, so that the decoration became fully integrated into the vessel. The technique was used in both decorative vases and functional pieces, such as tableware—bowls, goblets, carafes—and lamp shades.
