SAN MARINO, CA.- Thirty-two exquisite glass vases designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, on loan from a private collection, will feature in an exhibition opening this fall at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. “Tiffany Favrile Glass: Masterworks from the Collection of Stanley and Dolores Sirott” will survey the full range of Tiffany’s Favrile glass vase production, from experimental pieces made in the 1890s to the widely-admired peacock vases produced in the early years of the 20th century. The exhibition opens Oct. 7, 2017, and continues through Feb. 26, 2018, in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art.

The Sirott Collection is one of the most significant private collections of Tiffany Favrile glass in the United States, comprising almost 300 objects—a small but select sampling of which will be included in the exhibition.

While Tiffany is famous for many types of glass work, including stained glass windows, the Sirott Collection focuses exclusively on Tiffany’s Favrile vases. These lustrous vessels, known for their innovative forms and colors, are among the most exquisite examples of Art Nouveau-inspired decorative art created in this country. More…

“We're delighted to share these gems from the Sirotts’ important collection of Tiffany glass. This exhibition provides the unique opportunity to examine glass masterworks that are rarely seen by the public," said Chad Alligood, The Huntington’s Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art. "With our first-rate collection of American decorative arts and our emphasis on art in the context of nature, The Huntington provides the ideal context for this exhibition.” The Huntington is fortunate to have several examples of Favrile glass in its permanent collection, including one of Tiffany’s earliest pieces and a monumental vase that was once owned by Louis Comfort Tiffany himself.
