Tiffany Favrile Glass  Reactive Vase 1
Height: 6 inches
American, circa 1900-03

This early “Reactive” Favrile Glass Vase by Tiffany Studios features an abstracted leaf and vine motif against a transparent background which shifts through shades of magenta, purple and blue.

The “Reactive” line of Favrile Glass was developed exclusively by Tiffany’s glass chemists; the reactions between light and color in the glass were achieved through the introduction of metallic substances to the molten glass during the blowing process. The chemical reactions produced during this process resulted in fascinating color effects and varying levels of transparency, with these particular elements “reacting” differently to transmitted or reflected light.
