Art History

Loius C. Tiffany

One of America’s most acclaimed artists, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s (American, 1848¬1933) career spanned from the 1870s through the 1920s. He embraced virtually every artistic and decorative medium, designing and directing his studios to produce leaded-glass windows, mosaics, lamps, glass, pottery, metalwork, enamels, jewellery, and interiors. Of all of his creative endeavors, stained glass brought Louis Comfort Tiffany the greatest recognition. His Favrile glass, patented in 1881, was internally coloured with variegated shades of colour or hues which created a milky, opaque, and sometimes rainbow- hued appearance when light shone through it. Unusual effects were created by introducing textures and adding different layers of glass or plating.

 

Description

“Art jewellery” by Louis C. Tiffany (American, 1848¬1933), made after 1907, was notable for its use of semiprecious stones and enamel. Meta K. Overbeck, one of his principal designers, became head designer of his jewellery production in 1914. Our elegant earrings are based on an original drawing for an elegant briolette pendant found in a rare book of Overbeck’s designs (ca. 1914–33) in the collection of The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art. Produced in cooperation with The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida. 18K gold overlay, with glass and resin. 2 1/4”L. Pierced, with gold-filled posts.
