On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 743

This so-called jack-in-the-pulpit vase is one of the quintessential shapes in Tiffany's oeuvre of blown glass. Essentially a flower form, it has a flattened globular base resembling a bulb rising into a slender stalk to an open blossom with a ruffled rim. The outer rim has a feathery appearance, as if the iridescence on the surface developed shallow fissures when the molten blossom was expanded to its final form.
