  • engraved L.C.T. and W1827
  • favrile glass

Provenance

Macklowe Gallery, New York

Condition

Overall in very good condition. With a few minute air bubble and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not at all visually detracting. The interior coupe with some light surface soiling. As is commonly seen in flower forms, the interior coupe with some scattered red spotting, which is inherent in the sprayed application of the iridescent surface treatment (not visually detracting). The top rim is vigorously ruffled, giving the vase a dynamic sculptural presence. An outstanding example, the interior of the coupe and underside of the decorated foot are beautifully iridized, imparting the vase with strong luminous color on the exterior. The green pulled feather decoration is sensitively rendered. With two burst air bubbles. The underbase with discretely applied accession number by prior owner.
