A favrile gold glass bowl and saucer set by Tiffany Studios, early 20th century. The set is hand-blown gold iridescent glass and tooled with pulled pigtail prunts. The colors shimmer between shades of gold, orange, yellow and green. The bottom of the saucer stands on pulled print legs and the bottom is a work of art in itself. The glass is semi-translucent and is marvelous against a light source.

Tiffany Studios was a decorative arts company run by Louis Comfort Tiffany from 1848-1933. Louis Comfort Tiffany was the first Design Director at Tiffany & Co., founded by his father, Charles Lewis Tiffany. Charles Tiffany wrote: "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."

These favrile pieces are a challenge to photograph because of their iridescence, transparency, and texture, but they are a pleasure to hold and admire under different light sources.
