Beautiful, large Tiffany Studios gold iridescent Favrile bowl. First quarter of 20th century. One of the lovely features of this bowl is the shimmering shades of gold, blue, and red. The piece stands 3.4" tall, 8.25" wide at top, 4" at base. The exterior of the bowl has a color shift taking place about halfway down the side highlighting two different shades of gold iridescence. Signed (etched) L.C. Tiffany-Favrile. Scalloped rim. Polished pontil. This would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
About Favrile glass:
Favrile glass is a type of iridescent art glass designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. It was patented in 1894 and first produced in 1896. It differs from most iridescent glasses because the color is ingrained in the glass itself, as well as having distinctive coloring.
Some of the distinguishing colors in Favrile glass include "Gold Lustre," Samian Red," Mazarin Blue," "Tel-al-amana" (or Turquoise Blue), and Aquamarine. This bowl has a great presence and all the beautiful hues you would expect out of a high-quality Favrile piece.
Excellent condition. Normal surface wear. No chips, cracks or repairs.
This outstanding bowl was found at an estate sale during a road trip to New Orleans. It came from a family that had owned the same plantation house since the mid 1800's. The great-grandmother had passed away and the family was selling her possessions to settle her estate.
