For sale is an original Tiffany Favrile salt made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The salt stands 1 1/4" tall and is 3" in diameter at its widest point. The foot or the bottom of the salt is 1 3/4" in diameter.
The salts display a three corner or Patriots hat shape. It has an outstanding Gold Favrile iridescence to it. The gold Favrile, Aurene luster or iridescent is just beautiful!!! There are beautiful platinum blue tones surrounding the outside of the salt. When you look, inside it pops with color. It shows this deep rich gold iridescence highlighted with strong fuchsia tones and just the right amount of platinum blues.
This Tiffany salt is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. It displays a counter sunk polished pontil. The finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass. The salt is not signed and it is my belief that it had a paper label at one time.
I have never seen this shape in a Tiffany Favrile salt before. I also suspect it was a special order. If you look carefully at the salt when held to the light you can see this was made from the Tiffany Favrile ruffled salt in the Queen pattern shape. This is a variable of that pattern. I have had many dealers familiar with Tiffany Favrile and they feel this is an original Tiffany Favrile salt as do I. I have had hundreds of Tiffany salts in my 45+ years as a collector and dealer and it has all of the characteristics of a Tiffany Favrile salt.
Those of you who collect Tiffany Favrile Salts and want a very rare example here is your chance to own the only one I have ever seen.
