Tiffany Studios, Tiffany Glass favrile Vase Cypriote

Tiffany Studios, Tiffany favrile glass Cypriote Vase. Double gourd form, signed L.C. Tiffany favrile 3071P, with the original Tiffany paper label, measuring 5″ h. x 4 1/2″ w. Unusual shape. Description: In the Cypriote technique, Tiffany sought to simulate glass excavated from archaeological sites on Cyprus. To replicate the surfaces of buried artifacts, particles of metallic oxides were applied to a mass of molten glass. This created a chemical reaction that pitted the surface of the glass when it was held to a flame. A gather of molten glass was rolled over a steel plate covered in pulverized silica rock, a process which also pitted its surface.
