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.
