I just received an addition to my LCT Favrile collection; another "floriform" vase in gold Favrile. This one has a wonderfully organic shape (it doesn't even stand completely vertical) and very nice iridescence, at a good height of 11". It is signed on the bottom with the number "5300 H". I do not have the reference for this yet, but I'm going to guess this puts it right around 1900, or a little earlier? I'm sure someone out there can give me a better idea of the date.
The third photo shows the new vase with my other gold Favrile vases, including the center one which is 16-1/2" tall. All three vases are heavy, and all have a nice "ring" when plunked. The third is often called a "goblet" vase, but it can't be used as such so I group it with the floriforms. In any case it helped to balance the composition.
