Louis Comfort Tiffany's blown art glass, made from 1891 to 1928, embodies the artist's superior workmanship and satisfied his dream to introduce objects of both usefulness and beauty into the average household. These lovely objects, which he named Favrile and made in his New York studio, display Tiffany's reverence for antique glass and include the colored, gold iridescent, blue iridescent, and opalescent forms featured in this book. Over 240 color photographs of objects from many public and private collections, a very interesting text, and meticulously composed descriptions display Tiffany's intriguing art glass together for the first time in book form. Comments about their rarity accompany the descriptions.
