About this ObjectTiffany's vase attempts to resurrect the Roman technique of favrile iridescent glass which captured and diffused light and provided rich coloristic effects. Here the decoration of ivy leaves reinforces the Neoclassical effect of the design and shape of the perfectly proportioned vase.
