In a long career that encompassed nearly every form of fine and decorative arts, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) is particularly noted for reviving and revolutionising the art of stained glass. To achieve his subtle and naturalistic effects, he made use of the variations inherent in glass as well as manipulating the molten material itself.
The floral pattern on our vibrant mugs is adapted from the Magnolia floor lamp, made by Tiffany Studios about 19101913 and now in the collection of the New-York Historical Society. The lampshade is distinguished by the use of a ridged, highly textured glass called drapery glass, which conveys the fleshy texture of magnolia blossoms. Produced in cooperation with the New-York Historical Society. Includes 2 mugs. Porcelain, with decal application. Gift boxed. Dishwasher and microwave safe. 8 1/2 oz. each. 4”H each.
