Tiffany Glass

Henry and Lousine Havemeyer were active collectors of the hand-made, iridescent glass made by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Tiffany had been making leaded windows since the late 1870s, but only began to make blown-glass vessels in the early 1890s—not long after he designed the interior of the H.O. Havemeyer house in New York. Tiffany’s term for this opulent glasswork was Favrile (derived from the Old English word fabrile, meaning “handmade”); he obtained a patent for the richly colored and iridescent Favrile glass in 1894. Working with Tiffany to select outstanding pieces, the Havemeyers amassed an impressive collection of Tiffany’s Favrile glass; much of it was donated by the family to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Nearly all of the Tiffany glass in the University of Michigan’s collection was purchased at auction in 1930 by Emil Lorch.
