Tiffany Favrile, Cameo Vase

Cameo Vase
Cameo Vase

The two ways to make a vase into a cameo vase are either acid-etching or wheel-carving. By far, the most labor intensive is the latter. First the colored glass was applied by a second worker while the vase was molten. That step is called padding. Upon cooling, the vase was sent to a carver who manually carved the decoration from top to bottom. There is no acid-etching in this vase at all. It's totally wheel-carved and incredible. Nice size at 11¾" tall. Signed. Mint condition.

The workmanship and beauty of this carved chalice is astonishing. Let me explain. First the three individual parts had to be hand-blown and assembled while the glass was molten. Then while still molten, the green glass was added. It then was iridized while hot. On cooling, it was transferred to a master craftsman, who meticulously carved all the detail in the grape leaves and clusters, as well as the leaf and vine decoration on the stem. It's a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Nice big size at 9" tall. I added a photo with a ½ liter bottle of Coke to show you the size. Signed. Mint condition. For the best collections!

Tiffany Favrile floriform vases vary considerably in size, decoration, color and quality. This example has it all. The green pulled feather decoration is well executed and contrasts nicely with the opalescent ground. The decoration extends down the entire stem. The foot is gold iridized on the underside, so the effect is of a paperweight. The form is lovely, with a nicely crimped rim. Good size at 12¾". Signed and numbered underneath. The condition is immaculate, including the interior of the bowl.

I've been lucky recently to be able to purchase several superb Tiffany Favrile floriform vases. This example is one of the best. It's quite large at 14½" tall. The decoration is green pulled feather, against a lightly iridized gold, opalescent interior. The decoration continues all the way down the leg where it attaches to the clear glass base, which has been iridized on the underside (paperweight technique). The highly fluted, stretched glass rim tops off the artistry of this beautiful vase. Engraved signature and number underneath. Mint condition.

The core of many Tiffany Favrile glass collections is often a Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase. The quality varies from example to example. This one has all the qualities to look for in a desirable example. It's tall, 20"; the mouth is large; the iridescence is strong; the condition is excellent (with a few minor scratches around the foot). Engraved signature on the underside.

Tiffany Studios started to produce pastel glass after Douglas Nash took over the reins of the company in 1919. This lovely 8" diameter compote has a stretch glass top in a beautiful shade of cerulean blue-purple. Most importantly the top is masterfully hand-carved with leaves and vines. There's nothing like a little wheel-carving to increase the beauty, rarity and desirability of an item.

Contrary to the earlier numbering where each item had a unique number, later numbers are shape numbers and are therefore repeated on objects with the same shape. This compote is signed "1924 L.C. Tiffany - Favrile", where 1924 is the shape number. Mint condition.

Wheel-Carved Lily Vase

There's an interesting story behind this vase. A lady contacted me for an appraisal of her Tiffany vase. I couldn't believe it when I saw the photo of a spectacular, authentic, Tiffany Favrile wheel-carved vase.

The lady said it was a gift to her mother years ago and she would like me to sell it for her. I was very pleased to oblige.

The vase is 16" tall and heavy, with thick walls. The base glass is white covered with a green layer, which is then covered with a gold iridescent layer. The magic of the vase happened when a very skilled craftsman carved a gorgeous lily flower and bud and leaves into the vase. It's a very rare example that I haven't seen one quite like before. The suffix J in the number indicates it was made in 1915.

The condition is excellent except for a 1" scratch below the flower and above some overlapping leaves. There is also some scuffing around the foot rim. It's all very minor, especially for such an important vase.
