LCT Tiffany, Gold Favrile Cordial, Dimpled or Toothpick Vase, Very Nice~~
For sale is an original piece of Art Glass made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The item is called a "Cordial" but some collectors this a Toothpick Holder, Thumbprint or Dimpled Vase. The piece stands 1 13/16" tall and is 1 5/8" wide. The inside opening is 1 1/4" wide.
The Cordial has brilliant iridescence with strong hues of Platinum Blues, and some Fuchsia. It is similar to Steuben's Gold Aurene in color. The piece is accented with four indented dimples and has a small slightly flared lip. The cordial has a platinum appearance as the iridescence is that wonderful. This Cordial could be used as a Cabinet Vase. The correct application is, "in a decanter set", as Louis Comfort Tiffany designed these to be used for that purpose.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no chips, nicks or cracks. The Cordial has a counter sunk polished pontil. The sign of quality art Glass. The piece is properly signed counter clockwise "L.C.T." along the outer bottom edge just below the counter sunk pontil. There is also the number 105 lightly etched to the left of L.C.T. I believe this to be the shape number for this style cordial. This is an early piece of L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile and was made Circa 1902-1910.
Purchase with confidence as this will make a wonderful addition to any Art Glass collection or serve as the missing Cordial in a Decanter Set or simply can be used as a beautiful Cabinet Vase.
