Louis Comfort Tiffany employed the motif of Queen Anne’s lace, also known as "wild carrot," in his pottery, glass, and jewelry designs. Here, the bracts (stems on the underside of the blossoms) curl upward to form the organic shape of the vase. Queen Anne’s lace was also the inspiration for the design of a cameo-cut glass vase (1997.409) and a hair ornament also in the Museum's collection (2001.249).
