For Sale is a lovely piece of Art Glass made by Tiffany Studios of New York, New York. The Item is a "Gold Favrile Stemmed Cordial" and it is done in the very desirable wheel cut "Grapes + Leaves" pattern. The Cordial Stands 4 1/2" tall and the Cup is 1 1/2" in diameter. The bottom foot has a diameter of 1 11/16".
The Cordial displays a wonderful and Delicate wheel cut pattern of "Grapes and Leaves". The detail is just unbelievable as you can actually see veining in the leaves. The Cordial has a very nice Gold Favrile Aurene Iridescence with hues of Gold and Platinum Blues with some Purples. The Cordial sits on a Round Foot that gracefully rises up to the very slender stem. The Stem is very thin and rises to small Bell Shaped Drinking Vessel. The Foot and the top of the Cordial have a wonderfully Rolled and Fire Polished edge. This piece of Art Glass is so delicate that it is amazing that it has survived over 100 years without damage.
The Stemmed Cordial is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Piece is signed on the bottom with the Etched "L.C.T. Favrile" Cipher mark for "Louis Comfort Tiffany" and there is also the numbers "1631" lightly etched. This is either the Model Number in Tiffany's Catalog or a Special order number. These Cordials are rather Hard to find with no damage as they are very delicate. This one is about as good as they get. I'm sure the buyer will be delighted with their Purchase.
