Footed Bowl (USA), 1913–16
This is a Footed bowl. It was produced by Tiffany Studios. It is dated 1913–16 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mold-blown favrile glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
This grouping shows off a wide range of visual effects and glass-blowing techniques. The aquamarine footed bowl [1975-32-14] was made by the paperweight technique in which an outer layer of heavy clear glass surrounds the water lilies to enlarge their imagery and give a blurry underwater effect. Green glass has been blown directly into the candlestick’s bronze cage [1975-32-12] to give the form dynamic dimension. Meanwhile the two small glass vessels [1966-55-15 and 1978-177-1] display Tiffany’s experimentation with marbleized glass.
