For sale is an original Tiffany Favrile salt made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The salt stands 1" tall and is 2 1/2" in diameter at its widest point. The foot or the bottom of the salt is 1 7/8".
There are 8 individual ruffles. The Gold Favrile, Aurene luster or iridescence inside and outside the salt is just outstanding!!! You can see very beautiful strong hues of platinum blues throughout. The platinum iridescence on the bottom is so strong it actually looks blue when held at an angle. There is a definite difference between Tiffany Favrile salts as some are weak in the iridescence and some are not. This one is exceptional. You can also see vertical ribbing between the ruffles. This gold salt is part of the "Queen" pattern in the Tiffany Favrile catalog.
This Tiffany Salt is in excellent condition as I cannot find anything wrong with it. There isn't even scratches or iridescence loss to the piece. It appears to have used minimally. The salt is signed with the etched "L.C.T." along the bottom edge in a counter clockwise fashion. The salt also displays a counter sunk polished pontil. The finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass.
If you are looking for a salt to add to your collection that is considered to be a beautiful example, look no further!! Do not let this one slip by you! This piece was made circa 1900-1920.
