LCT Tiffany Gold Favrile Trumpet, Floriform Vase, Very Nice~~
For Sale is a very lovely piece of Art Glass made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The Item is the highly collected and very desirable "Floriform" or "Trumpet" form Flower Vase". This Vase is done in Tiffany's highly sought after Gold Favrile Style of Art Glass. The Vase would be considered a nice Cabinet Size as it stands 6 3/4" tall. The Top or Flower part of the Vase is 2 13/16" or roughly 3" in diameter outside measurement.
The Floriform has a Trumpet Shaped Flower at the top with Vertical Ribbing that rises up from a Stem off of a circular foot. The Gold Floriform Favrile, Aurene Iridescence is just outstanding!! You can see very strong Fuchsia's along the bottom foot accented with Platinum Blues on gold all over the rest of the Vase both inside and out. There is one part of the foot that really shows off this Fuchsia Color and it is simply, "Gorgeous".
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece shows minimal wear and it is my belief that it sat in a Cabinet most of its life. Many of these Vases have Mineral Deposits on the inside. I am happy to report that this one has minimal. There are a few minor scratches on the bottom. The Vase is signed on the bottom with Tiffany's Etched Signature that reads, "476P 1831 L.C. Tiffany-Favrile" written in script. I believe the 1831 number is the model number in the Tiffany Favrile Catalogs. The Suffix Letter "P" means this vase was made in 1921.
This is one of the Nicest Gold Cabinet Floriforms I have had the pleasure of owning. I will honestly say that this Floriform Vase in this size is one the Finest I have ever owned. The Vase is so light and delicate it is simply amazing that it has survived 91 years in this condition. It is almost as good as the day it was made. I'm sure the buyer will cherish this wonderful piece of Art Glass in their Collection for many years.
