Decorated Flower Form Vase

$ 6,500
  • Description
    This iridescent Tiffany Favrile Glass Flower Form Vase features a motif of thin, swirling vines and heart-shaped leaves in variegated green, with white inclusions suggesting three-dimensionality, floating over a golden background. This example is notable for the saturated mauve pigmentation of the all-over surface iridescence.

    The inverted teardrop form of the body is rounded at the top of the vase with a slightly everted rim, tapering to a thin knobbed stem supported by a flat rounded foot.

    In a period photo dated to 1914-17 documenting the flower forms produced under the supervision of Leslie Nash, held in the Nash archives at the Rakow Research Library at the Corning Museum of Glass, this particular form is labeled as the Narcissus flower form. In Nash’s notebooks, also held by Rakow, a hand-drawn illustration of this particular form, also listed as Narcissus, is accompanied by the notation that it was “very beautiful” and “always on order.”

    This piece of original Tiffany glass is signed on the underside.
