CARVED COMPOTE DISH
engraved 1702 L.C. Tiffany-Favrile with the firm's paper label
6⅛ in. (15.6 cm) high
6½ in. (16.5 cm) diameter
Overall in very good condition. The perimeter of the coupe is decorated with a finely carved foliate motif and displays strong iridescence. The glass displays with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The glass surfaces with some occasional extremely fine and minor surface scratches, consistent with age and gentle handling. The outer perimeter of the foot with a few minute fleabite flecks, not visually distracting. An extremely elegant form with delicate decoration.
