Fun Fact

Tiffany's artisans designed this vase with multicolored swirling patterns to reflect the taste for naturalistic forms and colors fashionable in the early 1900s.


This vase was made by the studio of American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany. The swirling colors on the surface form green stems and leaves with yellow and orange flowers. This decoration embodies the Art Nouveau style, in which natural forms were manipulated and paired with colors that mimicked nature.
