    Description

    The Tiffany Studios New York were one of the most famous art studios in the United States around the turn of the century. Glass vases from this workshop fetch top prices in today’s art market and are among the most sought-after decorative objects from around 1900. Tiffany produced art objects in almost all categories, from hand mirrors and desk sets to jewelry and glassware.
    Soliflore vases with bronze or brass bases were introduced into the Tiffany`s sortiment around 1900 and enjoyed great popularity. Particularly noteworthy are the modern form of the brass base and its detailed execution, and the exceptionally colorful iridescence of the glass.

    Artist

    Louis Comfort Tiffany (New York 1848 – 1933 New York) was a famous American designer, artist and painter of American Art Nouveau. He was best known for his works in glass colored with metal salts and made a name for himself in the decorative arts at the time. In the course of his career, he created a unique style that combined outstanding craftsmanship with a love for natural shapes and bright colors. Nature had always been his inspiration and in his designs he tried, in his very own way, to capture its beauty forever. Tiffany designed lamps, glass mosaics, lead glass windows, glass vases, ceramics, jewellery, enamel and metalwork. Among the highlights of his work were countless high awards, including a Grand Prix at the 1900 Paris World Exhibition and his life's work “Laurelton Hall”, an 84-room home for his family in Long Island, New York.

    Execution

    In 1880, Louis Comfort Tiffany founded the "Associated Artists", in partnership with Lockwood De Forest, specialist in furniture and woodwork, Candace Wheeler, designer and textile specialist, and the painter Samuel Colman. The partnership has produced all kinds of decorative objects, including lighting, flooring, windows, mosaics and furniture. Together, the members of this partnership decorated many famous homes and buildings, including Mark Twain's home in Hartford, the former White House lobby, and the Veterans Room in the Park Avenue Armory. Later, Tiffany built large workshops with glass furnaces in Corona in Queens, New York. Together with Arthur Nash, a trained master glassmaker from Stourbridge, the desire grew to concentrate on glass art. These efforts led to the dissolution of the "Associated Artists" in 1885. In the same year, Tiffany founded his own glassmaking company, the "Tiffany Glass Company", which became known as "Tiffany Studios" in 1902. There, the high-quality glass products, for which Tiffany became so famous, were designed and produced under his own strict supervision and high quality standards. The Tiffany Studios in New York closed in 1930, three years before L. C. Tiffany's death.
