Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of he most prolific designers of the late 19th century. He declared that his life long goal was “the pursuit of beauty”. His father, Charles Lewis Tiffany, was a founder and principal owner of Tiffany & Company, the highly successful New York City jewelry and fancy goods store. In 1885 Tiffany focused on new methods of glass manufacture. He had gotten a patent in 1881 for opalescent window glass. Opalescent glass was firmly rejected by the other important school of stained glass revival which used the traditional painting on glass method. Tiffany’s enormous glass inventory of more than 5,000 different colors and textures enabled him “to paint with glass” and imbue his interior designs, windows, and lamps with light and color effects heretofore unknown. Although Tiffany lamps, windows, and decorative accessories continued to be made through the 1920s, the heyday of production ended at the onset of World War I.
