Tiffany's Pink and Gold Favrile Glass Vase with Applied Tadpole Pattern
This beautiful iridescent Louis Comfort Tiffany's vase is from 1910, with applied tadpole tendrils and threading pattern. Its lovely pink, violet and gold iridescence makes it really stand out. The glass vase is 4 inches tall and 2 1/4 inches wide. The tadpoles start from the bottom of the glass vase and go up about 2 inches. Because the tadpole pattern is so delicate and the tendrils thin slivers of glass, there is a break in two of the tadpoles, with a tiny piece missing. The price reflects the slight damage to the glass. Overall it is a beautiful little example of Favrile art glass from Tiffany. Its glass body is really vibrant, especially dramatic under direct sunlight. Tiffany’s believed that nature should be the primary source of design inspiration; his design and aesthetics show this conviction. 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. This glass vase is signed LTC with the numbers 1121A at the bottom.
