For Sale is a lovely piece of Art Glass made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The item is a "Pastel Sherbet". The color is the much sought after "Pink Opal" Pastel. The Foot has a diameter of 2 11/16".
Every time I look at this Sherbet it looks a little bit different. The Color looking straight in appears more Rosy Pink but when viewed from the side it has a lighter Pink Hue. The Sherbet displays 10 white opalescent fingers that start in the middle bottom and raise up and get wider all the way to the rim and outer edge. The deep Rosy Pink Onion Skin border is simply superb!!
The Sherbet is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issue is in the making as there are a few inclusions on the inside wall of the sherbet in an opalescent finger. This is factory and considered insignificant. The Sherbet has a Sunken Polished Pontil, the sign of Quality Art Glass. This Sherbet is signed along the outer edge of the Polished Pontil "L.C.T. Favrile" counter clockwise. Along the edge of the Polished Pontil are the numbers "1777" lightly etched to the lefty of the cipher. This was more than likely a Model or Special Order Number.
This is a wonderful addition to any Tiffany Pastel Art Glass Collection. You see the Stemmed Sherbets. You hardly ever see the Flat Sherbets anymore. This piece was made circa 1910-1920.
