Favrile: A Breakthrough by Hand
"Favrile" is derived from the Latin word "fabrilis", meaning "made by hand". Favrile glass is produced by exposing molten glass to a series of fumes and metallic oxides that infuse it with glowing colors and an exciting iridescence. It was a major breakthrough for Louis Comfort Tiffany, surpassing even the best of the 13th Century glasswork. He used Favrile glass with its magnificent iridescent colors in all of his windows, lamps, vases, and mosaics.
Dale Tiffany's Favrile Collection of uniquely hand crafted art glass continues this historic tradition. By adhering to the same standard of excellence demanded by Tiffany of his own studio, our Hand Blown art glass is created to blend perfectly with today's home fashion trends and lifestyles.
