Hello again friends. As Yogi Berra also once said "It's never over until it's over", which I guess in this case means I have one more for ya before I go. Yogi also said "better than 90% of the game is 50% mental" which has nothing to do with it, I just think he was hilarious! :)

This one comes to me from Mr T. (famatta127); one of the most knowledgeable and trusted friends we have here on CW. I mention this only because this item was attributed (by him, and by the auction house he bought it from) to Tiffany, being that it is unsigned, and I trust his judgement and expertise 100%. I also know a little on the subject, and everything about this piece is "spot on" as the Britt's say. The glass, color, form and decoration are of the highest quality, and the only other major candidate is Trevaise; which all have button pontils I am told, and this one is ground and polished as Tiffany usually did. Mr. T also showed in his ad an identical vase sold 11 years ago at Sothebys that was signed, so that about seals it. I have looked it up myself (on liveauctioneers) and it is identical; I just wish they had shown the base/signature which is ALWAYS a good idea when selling an item. I will post the link if anyone wants to check it out (my pictures are MUCH better!). In any case this is a superb example of early L. C. Tiffany Favrile, and I am very happy to have it in my collection. Thanks again Mr. T! :)

    Thanks JayHow, and I will mention it to Mr. T. Is it the one you have listed as a mystery? I just looked at it and it does have Tiffany characteristics. The polished pontil definitely makes it a possibility, but the shape and color suggest Steuben to me - they did this sort of thing in those subtle colors with low iridescence called verre de soie, while Tiffany is more likely to be highly iridescent. Steuben did optic molds like this too. Stretch glass is also more common to Steuben, although Tiffany did some as well. I would bet it's one or the other, but I'm leaning towards Steuben. Mr. T might be able to nail it down better, we'll see. :)
