DescriptionLaurelton Hall was the ultimate expression of the artistry of Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933). He designed everything—from the grounds to the interiors—for his extraordinary Oyster Bay, Long Island, home between 1902 and 1905. Laurelton Hall’s four-columned loggia, now installed in the Museum’s American Wing, once served as the estate’s terraced entrance. We have adapted the loggia’s exotic floral capitals, which feature glazed ceramic flowers in various stages of bloom, for our colorful porcelain bowls.

Art HistoryA master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) was one of America's most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. Son of the founder of the silver and jewelry firm Tiffany & Co. of New York, Louis Comfort Tiffany began his career as a painter, but moved quickly to interior decoration. In addition to stained-glass windows and lighting fixtures, his studios also made luminous glass vases and bowls, pottery, furniture, textiles, jewelry, and works in bronze and enamel. Louis Comfort Tiffany's country house, Laurelton Hall, was his architectural masterpiece. Situated on 600 acres overlooking Long Island Sound, the sprawling estate was a showcase both for his own work and for his vast collection of artwork and decorative arts from around the world.
