According to Louis Comfort Tiffany. Favrile glass is distinguished by brilliant or deeply toned colors, usually iridescent like the wings of certain American butterflies, the necks of pigeons and peacocks, the wing covers of various beetles. ThIs LCT-Tiffany Art Glass piece has been in our collection for years, IS very rare and only seen in museums. The large “BIG GOLD BEAUTY” is incredible, considered the finest LCT-FAVRILE Bowl, ever seen. Drop dead gorgeous, no chips, cracks, flaws, all marks, #’s sig. S are in place. Bowl is 3.25 tall & 7.25 in diameter. So, could have been a made at the Tiffany Factory, or by a very good bronze artist/friend as it fits like it was made for, glove, and definitely period correct style!
