Tiffany Studios New York "Peacock" Favrile Glass and Bronze Mirror


A common theme in the Tiffany Studios New York oeuvre, the peacock motif, as can be seen in this exquisite "Peacock" mirror, was a well-loved and oft-used theme. Featuring a finely sculpted patinated bronze base decorated with stylized peacock feathers, the piece is accented with multi-colored Favrile glass mosaic tiles, dotted around the rim of the mirror and on the charming "feather" feet.

Peacock feathers were common motifs in Art Nouveau imagery; they were prized for their iridescent quality, their great range of color, their diaphanous nature, as well as their known symbolic standing as an icon of resurrection, renewal, and new life. They were also a personal favorite of Louis Comfort Tiffany's.
