An iconic design, the "Morning Glory" was first made around 1913, and it was so difficult for Leslie Nash and Tiffany's gaffers to create the morning glory, so exorbitantly expensive, that during the time of their original sale they were among the rarest and most expensive of Tiffany's glass forms.
