    The company Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of the most important and most famous art manufactures in the USA around the turn of the century. Alongside the famous Tiffany lamps and leaded glass mosaic windows, the glass vases are among the most important objects made by Louis Comfort Tiffany in New York.
    Vases of the “Floriform” type range among the most desired glasses, as they were complicated to produce and therefore very expensive even around 1900. Tiffany pieces were – typical for the arts and crafts of Art Nouveau – strongly inspired by floral motives. In this case the cup is artfully designed like a stylized tulip. Shape, coloring, and iridescence are beautifully displayed here.
    Floriform Tiffany vases are one of the “musts” of an Art Nouveau collection, as they document the mutual influence of the different art manufactories in Europe and the USA. The art glass from Loetz, for example, with its technically complex iridescence, would be inconceivable without Tiffany’s “Favrile” technique.
