Tiffany Favrile, 10

Tiffany Favrile, 10" Favrile shade

ITEM # 2708025

I rarely get 10" diameter Tiffany Favrile shades for sale by themselves. This is one of those rare opportunities. The shade is quite beautiful, with typical Wave decoration and excellent iridescence. Additionally it has ribs that show especially well when the shade is lit. The fitter diameter is 3¼", not 2¼", so it will fit either in a 10" ring or a lamp base with a larger fitter. Signed "L.C.T. Favrile" in the fitter rim. Mint condition, with no grinding or restoration.

Tiffany Favrile, Aquamarine vase

ITEM # 2101103

Aquarmarine vases are extremely rare and valuable.  This beauty is the only miniature I have ever seen.  The glass is very thick and heavy, much more so than a paperweight vase.  4" tall.  Signed.  Mint condition.  (From the same private collection as the other recent additions.)

Tiffany Favrile, Arabian lamp

Tiffany Favrile, Arabian lamp

ITEM # 2808004

Tiffany Arabian lamps come in different varieties, with the most desirable having matching glass bases. They also come with bronze bases (which are less desirable). Unfortunately many examples have been bastardized to create examples which Tiffany never created. This example has no excuses. It's all original, except for the wiring and plug (which you do not want original because of the fire danger). The color match is excellent between the shade and base; they're both properly signed; the socket and acorn pull chain are original; and the condition is mint. It's a great example for any fine Tiffany collection. You couldn't ask for better. 14¼" tall.

Tiffany Favrile, Black decorated vase

Tiffany Favrile, Black decorated vase

ITEM # 2401100

Is this vase killer, or what?  I just got it from a great private collection.  It's called a black decorated vase, but you can see it's got a lot more color than that.  It's decorated with gold hearts & vines, with blue trailings.  It's the most outstanding example of a Tiffany Favrile black vase I've ever had the pleasure of owning.  Nice size at 9" tall.  Signed.  Mint condition.  For the best collections.

Tiffany Favrile, Blownout inkwell

Tiffany Favrile, Blownout inkwell

ITEM # 2512007

I've only owned a few Tiffany Studios blownout inkwells over the years and never this model. They're special because the gaffer first started with the metal cage and blew the glass into it. It cannot be removed. Additionally, condition is very important, as it's easy to damage the glass. This example has been treated with kid gloves. It's in impeccably fine condition with no damage to the glass and with a rich original patina to the metal. Larger than the usual inkwells at 7" diameter. Signed.

ITEM # 2406020

Tiffany Favrile blue salts are much rarer than gold salts.  This example is even rarer because it has two pulled handles.  Add to that the intense blue color and excellent iridescence and you've got a very desirable salt.  Signed. Mint condition.

Tiffany Favrile, Blue decorated bowl

Tiffany Favrile, Blue decorated bowl

ITEM # 2712002

You probably know that blue Tiffany Favrile glass is rarer and more desirable than gold Tiffany Favrile glass. Decorated (in this case with green leaves & vines) blue glass is the next step up. This little double-lobed bowl, 2¾" tall x 4½" diameter, is as good as this shape gets. The color and iridescence are superb with strong blue on the exterior and purple on the interior. The form is elegant. The brass flower frog is original and almost always lost. It's a miracle this one survived 100 years. The condition is mint, with an original very minor flaw on the underside rim (visible in the third photo). It's iridized, original to the day it was made, and only mentioned for accuracy.
