Lush Iridescent Tiffany Favrile Glass Toothpick Holder
This is a wonderful little example of Favrile art glass from Louis Comfort Tiffany that dates back to the turn of the Century. It has a hand-made organic loo. This lovely miniature vase, or toothpick holder with gold iridescent tones, and lush highlights of orange, pink, violet, blue and purple is stunning. Its glass body is really vibrant, especially dramatic under direct sunlight. It has beautiful ruffles decorating the lip of the glass and a ribbing pattern all around. It is signed L.C.T. on the bottom with the number K558. The condition of this favrile glass piece is very excellent, with no chips and no wear to the Favrile surface. This is quite unique for its age. You can tell that this vase was well taken care of. The vase measures 2 1/2 inches, and 2 1/2 inches wide. Tiffany’s believed that nature should be the primary source of design inspiration; his design and aesthetics show this conviction. This vase takes on an almost sea anemone form. This fascination with nature led Tiffany to the exploration of another technique—in 1893 Tiffany introduced his first blown-glass vases and bowls, called “Favrile.” The name, he declared, was taken from an old English word for hand made. Favrile glass quickly gained international renown for its surface iridescence and brilliant colors.
