Tiffany is a name that appears on items made by Louis Comfort Tiffany, the American glass designer who worked from about 1879 to 1933. His work included iridescent glass, Art Nouveau styles of design, and original contemporary styles. He was also noted for stained glass windows, unusual lamps, bronze work, pottery, and silver. Tiffany & Company, often called just “Tiffany” The company was started by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young in 1837 in New York City. In 1853 the name was changed to Tiffany & Company. This very rare and early piece is incredible and indicative of his mastery of glass as a medium, the gold iridescent finish with the pink, light purplish hues throughout make this a extremely rare, beautiful one of a kind old piece.
