DescriptionLouis Comfort Tiffany's (American, 1848–1933) artistic visions found lasting expression in many of his leaded Favrile glass windows. Louis Comfort Tiffany’s reverence for nature is magnificently displayed in the naturalistic depictions of magnolias and irises, designed as a memorial to the Frank family of New York. Here he employed the well-known River of Life motif, with delicately rendered iris and magnolia blossoms framing a winding river that disappears into distant hills. Our colorful necklace is based on a detail from this window.

Art HistoryLouis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) was one of America’s most acclaimed and multi-talented artists working in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Louis Comfort Tiffany embraced virtually every decorative medium, designing and directing the production of windows, mosaics, lighting, glass vases, pottery, metalwork, enamels, and jewelry. Of all of his creative endeavors, stained glass brought Louis Comfort Tiffany the greatest recognition. His Favrile glass, patented in 1881, was internally colored with variegated shades of color or hues which created a milky, opaque, and sometimes rainbow-hued appearance when light shone through it. Unusual effects were created by introducing textures and adding different layers of glass or plating.
