-- Early Tiffany Favrile Iridescent Art Glass Vase Pre 1900 :
Another work of art from the mind of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
Highly decorated with faultless technique this Tiffany vase is likely a pre-1900 creation. The bright iridescent pulled feather decoration extends down from the rolled rim and up from from the base, meeting at the top of the large gourd. This decor and the vase's double gourd form screams early Tiffany.
The top half is decorated over a bright gold favrile application. Its a very subtle and seldom seen addition to the overall design.
Its has a polished pontil with the remnants of a paper label. The applied rim is fire polished. It is unsigned.
Size: 9 1/2" tall
Condition: excellent condition,showing only the textures imparted upon it in its making. There are no chips, no cracks or restorations.
Photos: My photos show the vase lit by natural sunlight, incandescent, and daylight studio lights (5500K LED studio lighting/ believed to replicate natural sunlight.) One photo shows the vase among others in our collection for color comparison.
Attribution: Seasoned Tiffany collectors will immediately recognize this piece as authentic, period correct L.C.Tiffany. Please check with any authority/expert on Tiffany you can find on the internet about its authenticity. That is exactly what I have done before listing it. I have also attached two reference photos from the web that support my claim. I ask you to look closely at the quality of the decoration and its application.
