Product Details

Radiant spears of white gladioli reach along our elegant glass frame inspired by the Art Nouveau decoration on a Favrile vase (ca. 1909) by Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933). In the 1890s, the Gilded Age designer developed a method of blending colors in glass while it was still in a molten state. The iridescent results, which he named "Favrile" after the Old English fabrile, meaning "hand-wrought," allowed for subtle effects of shading and texture.

The designer never sold this vessel, now at The Met; rather, he kept it in his own collection.

Piece displays a 4"x6" print or photo. Overall, the piece measures 8¼''L x 6¼"W.
