Many of Tiffany Studios pottery vases and bowls began as enamels. This vase is a direct copy of an enamel copper model of the same design (see 1981.444). Unlike the bright, multihued naturalistic enamels, the pottery versions were often glazed in a semi-matte monochrome finish.
Originally owned by the family of Joseph Briggs, the last manager of the Tiffany Studios; family, Maryland (?); Jack, Kill & Jon Antiques, New Jersey; Lloyd Macklowe Gallery, New York until 1968; Martin Eidelberg, New York.
