Thirty-two exquisite glass vases designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, on loan from a private collection, will be showcased in an exhibition opening this fall at The Huntington. While Tiffany is famous for many types of glass, including stained glass windows, the exhibition focuses exclusively on Tiffany’s Favrile vases. These lustrous vessels, known for their innovative forms and colors, are among the most exquisite examples of Art Nouveau-inspired decorative art created in this country. The exhibition will survey the full range of Tiffany’s Favrile glass vase production, from experimental pieces made in the 1890s to the widely-admired peacock vases produced in the early years of the 20th century. The works are on loan from the collection of Stanley and Dolores Sirott, one of the most significant private collections of Tiffany Favrile glass in the United States.
