Description Provenance Credit
Description In 1894, Louis Comfort Tiffany patented his Art Nouveau glass as "Favrile glass," a term derived form fabrile (Old English for belonging to a craftsman). The distinctive, iridescent sheen on his wares was achieved by spraying metallic salts on to the surface of the glass while it was still in a molten state.
Provenance Misses Elizabeth L. and Lousie M. Clark [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1952, by gift.
