This model of Favrile Pottery was likely initially intended by the Tiffany Studios for use as a base for Tiffany Lamps. As time went on, the company began to produce these pieces as standalone items; this vase, which is not drilled, was always meant to be a decorative object.
The footed vase of classical form is glazed in an all-over dripping variegated glaze with color tones ranging from soft teal to deeply saturated indigo. This glaze was likely one of a group of glazes developed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his chemists were that were inspired by the French Art Nouveau ceramicists that Tiffany encountered at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
This form is documented in period photographs taken by Tiffany Studios around 1905.
This vase features an incised monogram and inscribed model number on the underside.
