Louis Comfort Tiffany

Pond Lilly Lamp, 1906-10

Bronze and favrile glass blown at Tiffany Studios. The unique pearlescent shades are created using a method developed by Arthur Nash, allowing different colors of iridescent glass to be combined in a molten state. The glass is then blown to achieve various effects of color, shape, shading and texture. “Favrile” is a marketing term that Tiffany coined to recall the Old English word for “febrile” (hand-wrought).
