This listing is for a gorgeous Tiffany FAVRILE blue iridescent Art Glass open dish or low bowl, c. 1900. This nice bowl has a gracefully scalloped upper edge with ribbed design. The vibrant dark blue iridescent glass body is stunning with highlights of purple, gold and green iridescence. Marked with etched signature "L C Tiffany, Favrile, X578". The "X" prefix was generally used for experimental pieces. A gold iridescent glass finger bowl in the same style is pictured on page 97 in the book "Tiffany Favrile Art Glass" by Moise Stegg, Jr. Favrile glass was patented by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1894 and along with Frederick Carder's Aurene glass made for Steuben, this glass set the highest standard for iridescent glass at the turn of the 20th century.
