For Sale is a very lovely Gold Iridescent Salt made by Tiffany Studios, New York. These Gold Favrile Salts are some of the hardest to find without damage. We collectors call this salt a "Witches Cauldron" shape. The Table Pattern that these Salts belong to in the Tiffany Favrile catalog was known as the "Gypsy" Pattern. The Salt stands 1 3/8" tall and is 2 1/4" in diameter.
This Salts display a ribbed Witches Cauldron shape with applied feet. The ribbing is graceful and the salt has a brilliant Gold Iridescence Finish with strong hues of Fuchsia and Platinum Blues. The Gold iridescence looking into the salt is just outstanding!! The top lip has a ruffled border which displays a nice Platinum Blue Color against a gold iridescence background. The Salt is supported by 4 legs that sits level on the surface of a shelf.
This Salt is considered to be in excellent original condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The side of legs don't even have a flea nick and are all nicely polished on the bottom. The only issue is a few scratches on the underside of the Cauldron shape between the legs. This cannot be seen when displayed and this is pictured. My camera is 15X and the scratches on the bottom looks much larger than they actually are.
The Gold Favrile, Aurene is simply Beautiful!! The bottom displays a countersunk polished pontil. The sign of a quality piece of Art Glass. The Salt is signed on the bottom with the etched "L.C.T." signature mark for "Louis Comfort Tiffany" and as a added bonus still retains its original paper label. Those of you who collect salts and want an nice example in original aged condition need to look no further. This salt was made circa 1900-1920.
