Tiffany Favrile Glass
Very Early Agate Vase

Tiffany Favrile Glass <br> Very Early Agate Vase 1
Height: 7 1/4 inches
American, circa 1893

A very rare early Tiffany Favrile Glass 'Agate' Vase, the rounded body and elongated bottleneck in red agate glass with horizontal amber and vertical pale blue striations throughout.

Typical of the earliest blown Favrile Glass vases produced by Tiffany and his artisans shortly after opening their furnaces in 1893, the elongated neck exhibits a series of tool marks - similar vases with the same marks are documented in period photos taken by Tiffany's workers, which can be seen in "Behind the Scenes of Tiffany Glassmaking: The Nash Notebooks" by Dr. Martin Eidelberg and Nancy A. McClelland, published in 2001 by St. Martin's Press.
