About the Book

"The son of the New York jeweller and silversmith whose shop is still a byword for elegamce, Louis Tiffany was a many talented man whose wide-ranging artistic achievements were matched by equally brilliant entrepreneurial skills. He was first a painter and then an interior designer before turning his full attention to the art glass which was to bring him his greatest fame. The seed was sown when, as a young man, he visited Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and fell under the twin spells of the medieval stained glass windows in Europe's cathedrals and churches and the long bured ancient iridescent glass which archaeologists were unearthing." [Quoted from the Introduction to Chapter One: "Early Inflences", p. 7]
This book has:
"categorized historical coverage of the developments of Tiffany designs;
Extensive colour and black-and-white illustrations;
Information covering glass-making techniques, designs, pottery and moulds."
[Text quoted from the back cover of the book.]
