Beaker (USA), ca. 1910
This is a beaker. It was produced by Tiffany Studios. It is dated ca. 1910 and we acquired it in 1962. Its medium is blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Tiffany’s Favrile glass, patented in 1894, provided the perfect complement to his Art Nouveau forms. This mouth-blown vase’s twisted nodules – inspired by nature, as was the basis of the Art Nouveau style – catch the light on an otherwise flat surface, swirling the iridescent glass’ colors and creating movement.
