Peacock Vase Vase, ca. 1901
This is a Vase. It was produced by Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company and Tiffany and Co., New York and the design director was Louis Comfort Tiffany. It is dated ca. 1901 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mold-blown and iridized glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Louis Comfort Tiffany's patented "Favrile" glass, produced at the Tiffany Furnaces in New York, featured shimmering surfaces of iridescence, reminiscent of ancient glass treasures. The "Peacock" vases reflect Tiffany's interest in the long, sinous lines of the Art Nouveau style and his fascination with highly organic forms.
