Vases in the shapes of exotic floral forms were among the most popular of Louis Comfort Tiffany's designs in glass.

Description

When Louis Comfort Tiffany began collaborating with glass artists on new types of production, his aesthetic ambitions were finally realized in the development of Favrile glass, a term he created to imply “handmade.” Largely through his marketing ability, Favrile glass became America’s greatest contribution to the Art Nouveau style. His works were exhibited at international expositions; at galleries in major European cities, where his creations were bought by many museums; and in his store in Manhattan, known as the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Co., later Tiffany Studios. From the outset, Tiffany used Favrile glass in mosaic panels, stained glass windows, and his artistic line of table and floor lamps.
