This object forms part of a group of glass vessels and enamel containers Louis Comfort Tiffany loaned to the Museum in 1925 that were later given to the Museum by the Tiffany Foundation in 1951 (51.121.1–.44). Tiffany originally chose this group of objects to show examples of form, technique, and color that were not represented in the 1896 Havemeyer gift (96.17.9–.56). The mark on the underside of this vase indicates that this object was once part of Tiffany’s private collection. Less than 250 objects are so marked. Tiffany described the effects achieved here as created "by numerous glasses of various chemical constituents reacting one upon another." This vase was part of a series with morning glories; the first one was exhibited at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
