Etched Metal and Glass glove box
Etched metal and glass glove box.
Panels of streaky green Favrile glass are set behind a metal filigree in the Etched Metal and Glass glove box. Made from acid-etched copper, the overlay was available in either a pine or grapevine pattern, finished either with a dark patina or a more expensive gold. Though the pattern’s designer is unknown, the layering is a suggestive parallel to the filigree wings in Tiffany Studios’ Dragonfly lamp shade, designed by Clara Driscoll. Unlike other Tiffany desk set patterns, the Etched Metal and Glass items offered consumers a chance to own pieces of the firm’s renowned glass at more affordable prices than a leaded glass lamp or window.
