An original Tiffany Studios Favrile Glass Vase in the Byzantine style (sometimes also referred to as Tel-el-Amarna). A collector and enthusiast of ancient art from around the world, Louis Comfort Tiffany formed a vast personal collection antiquities for study and based many of the designs produced at Tiffany Studios on these historical designs.

The body of this original Tiffany glass vase, in a rich saturated blue tone, is of waisted baluster form with a bulbous shoulder, the applied rounded neck decorated with intersecting zig-zags, a motif typical of the antique Byzantine glass collected by Louis C. Tiffany, alternating between silvery iridescent and milky white, against an iridescent gunmetal background.
