Early Tiffany Studios Favrile Glass Floriform Vase Tiffany Sterling Silver Base:
Early Tiffany Studios favrile art glass floriform vase with Tiffany & Co Sterling silver base. No glass damage, cracks or chips. c. 1891-1902 This is a great early Tiffany floriform vase with a Tiffany & Co Sterling silver base. The sterling base has a nice wide sturdy base with a feather or acanthus leaf integrated design.A matchingfeather/ acanthus leafmotif is carried up the stem form fitting the glassvase. The glass vase has cut lines around the bottom that interlock with the silver vase. Thisdemonstrates that the glass vase section was fitted to the silver vase prior to the acanthus leaves being installed during production and thatthe silverwas made specifically to fit only this one glass vase.I have seen other pieces that were a collaboration between Tiffany & Co. Silver & Tiffany Studios. These companieswere being run by father and son during the time period dated on the silver. This is an early piece of Tiffany glass with no iridescence. It is documented that the Father, Charles L Tiffany of Tiffany & Co, did notcare the iridescence on the glass. ***The highest extending acanthus leaf, at some point in it life, was professionally repaired (photographed below) the repair is almost undetectable from the outside and from the inside (photographed below) you only see a small cleaned spot were the repair was made.*** Height: 16.75" Widest width: Base: 6", Glass: 2.5" Glass Vase: Unsigned Silver Hallmark: "Tiffany & Co Makers 1474 Sterling Silver 925-1000 T (letter mark for Charles L Tiffany 1891-1902 (LCT's Father) Payment
