Doyle to Auction Tiffany Studios Objects on June 7, 2017 at 10am
Highlights Include an Important Tiffany Studios Favrile Glass Mosaic Panel and a Selection of Lamps
Special Section of the June 7, 2017 Doyle+Design Sale, Comprising Lots 304-326
NEW YORK, NY -- The Doyle+Design auction on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 10am showcases a wide range of objects by Tiffany Studios, comprising lots 304 - 329. Highlighting the section is a magnificent and exceedingly rare favrile glass nautical themes mosaic panel. It was created by the Ecclesiastical Department of Tiffany Studios for Dorothy Linn (Mrs. Cyrus Hall McCormick, III) of Lake Forest, Chicago, Illinois, circa 1915-22. Measuring 36 inches in height, the panel acquired directly from Dorothy Linn by the current consignor in the 1960s (est. $100,000-150,000).
Property from the Estate of Harry Oppenheimer offers a large group of lamps. Four monumental gilt-bronze and favrile glass table lamps were commissioned circa 1897 from the relatively new Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company for Henry Hardenbergh’s sumptuous Hotel Manhattan, which once stood at the corner of Madison Avenue and 42nd Street near Grand Central Terminal. The rare and important lamp, measuring 53 3/4 inches in height with a shade 31 inches in diameter, was purchased by the current consignor at Doyle in 1987 (est. $40,000-60,000).
Louis Comfort Tiffany
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was one of the most prolific and creative artistic talents in America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of the luxury goods store Tiffany & Co. He received early training as a painter and traveled extensively in Europe. By 1879, he became a partner in the short-lived but influential decorating concern Louis C. Tiffany and Associated Artists. In 1883, Tiffany broke off on his own, and by 1892, he established the Tiffany Glass & Decorating Company. By 1902, his firm entered what was perhaps its most prolific period under the name Tiffany Studios
