Tiffany Favrile Pottery
Vase with Celtic Bird Motif

American, circa 1905
Height: 5 ½ inches (13.97 cm)
Diameter: 7 ¾ inches (19.685 cm)

An unusually elaborate wide-mouthed favrile pottery vase by Tiffany Studios decorated with a horizontal register of interlocking circles in the style of a Celtic interlace, each circular segment encapsulating a distinct avian motif - there are no repeats.

Wide-mouthed favrile pottery vases of this size and shape were originally designed as lamp bases in the early years of production when Tiffany Lamps were primarily powered by oil fuel; the wide mouth would accommodate an oil canister. As time went on and the company transitioned to electric power, these designs were produced as decorative vases.

A version of this vase in a similar blue glaze is in the permanent collection of the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida.

Fred Rothenbusch
Scenic Vellum Harbor Vase

American, 1910
Height: 9 inches (22.86 cm)

An unusual vase depicting a harbor scene by Rookwood artist Fred Rothenbusch, depicting a series of boats at work at a twilight in London harbor (the silhouette of the Tower Bridge can be seen behind the largest grouping of boats). Around the turn of the twentieth century, Rookwood began to treat the surface of the vase slightly differently, as in this piece. Instead of painting a scene across the entire surface, the vase was divided into sections: in this example, the upper and lower parts of the vase, in a soft blue glaze, are bisected by a horizontal band containing the entirety the harbor scene, framed by soft blue lines at the top and bottom.

Rothenbusch was known for his work depicting hazy landscapes in the Vellum glaze; a nephew of Albert Valentien, one of Rookwood’s most prolific artists, he was employed by the firm for over thirty years from 1896 to 1931.

Tiffany Favrile Glass
Early Cabinet Vase

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

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.
