Height: 3 ¾ inches
Diameter: 3 ¼ inches
American, circa 1897-99

This unusual early Tiffany Favrile Glass cabinet vase utilizes blown glass to recreate a technique used by Louis Comfort Tiffany in designs for candlesticks and Tiffany lamp bases produced at his nearby metal foundry: hot glass was blown through an elaborate openwork metal armature to produce a sculptural pillowed effect. In this experimental piece, silvery glass was applied to the surface of the bright green vase, forming Art Nouveau style strap work which seems to constrain the glass beneath.
