Tall bud Vase, ca. 1903-04
This is a Vase. It was produced by Tiffany Studios. It is dated ca. 1903-04 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mouth-blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Tiffany invented the term “favrile,” from the Latin fabrilis (handmade) to describe all of the blown glass produced by his firm. Nature was Tiffany’s primary inspiration, as shown beautifully in these three floraform vases. The designer cultivated a variety of flowers and plants in his gardens at Laurelton Hall and used them for study and inspiration.
