Tiffany & Co. Glass Bowls
Universally renowned for their exceptional creations, Tiffany Studios, led initially by Louis Comfort
Tiffany, is considered to be one of the most-collected antique glassmakers of all time. As a frontrunner in
the Art Nouveau era, Tiffany and his team of designers embraced the aesthetic of the age through organic
forms and miraculously-luminous glass.
Trained as an interior designer, Tiffany focused his efforts on glassmaking in the 1880s after having
studied some of the leading trends in the field. He marveled at the luminous colors and effects achieved in
glassware throughout history, even dating back to ancient times. Tiffany set out to strive for the same
brilliance in his designs.
Word spread quickly of Tiffany's abilities to render a remarkable range of colors and textures in his
pieces, particularly his bowls. His Favrile style, for instance, lavished his pieces in luminescence and
luxurious colors that served as a perfect complement to the organic forms or references his pieces often
assumed. Coveted in their day, antique Tiffany Studio bowls continue to cherished by collectors as true
treasures of Tiffany design.
Tiffany Studios' glasswork has been lauded with a number of awards, including a grand prize
at Buffalo's Pan-American Exposition in 1901 and a gold medal at Saint Louis' Louisiana Purchase
International Exposition in 1903
A record price was set for Tiffany Studio bowls at a Bonhams New York auction in 2014. A lot of six
Tiffany Favrile glass paperweight bowls sold for $20,000
Tiffany bowls are featured in the glass collections of some of the world's finest museums, including
New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston
