DescriptionOur rollerball pen is based on a picture frame with an original Favrile glass and gilt-bronze pine bough pattern created by the studios of Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848– 1933). He is known for creating one of a kind art objects—handblown vases, special-order mosaics and windows, and finely crafted jewelry—consistent with his mission to bring beauty into the home. Many of the designs that came from the Tiffany Studios were inspired by nature and incorporated Louis Comfort Tiffany’s signature Favrile glass. The picture frame's pattern was created by placing opalescent blue Favrile panes behind an etched and pierced metalwork design.

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. He 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 that 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.
