Description

A fine and rare American Art Nouveau blown Tiffany Favrile “Decorated” vase by, Tiffany Studios with heavily iridescent and mirrored pulled feather decoration on the lower part graduating into a window technique to the mid portion to the top of the vase further decorated with a “tyrian” decoration all against a heavily iridescent and reactive mauve background. The vase is signed, “L.C.T. E745” and retains a partial paper label. 

Notes:
Please note that the vase is heavily reactive to light. The light whether displayed in natural, artificial, low/hot and or led light the vase will display differently and the iridescence will display differently as well. It is a great example of a decorated vase displaying many different techniques used by the studios.
