About this title

Synopsis:

Everyone knows the beauty and value of Tiffany glass lamps, vases and windows. But few know that the masterful pieces fron the Tiffany Studios would not have been possible without Arthur Nash, developer of the now-priceless Favrile glass, and his son Leslie, director of the Studio's division of glassmaking, pottery and enamel. Leslie's memoirs, along with notes and references, tell the unfiltered and refreshing story of the Studio's heyday, and substantially expand our knowledge, and his photos comprise the largest collection of here-to-fore unseen images of the studio's earliest pieces. This historical find is an event in the decorative arts world and will appeal to both collectors and museums and those who use e-bay and watch "Antiques Road Show."

About the Author:

Nancy A. McClelland is the International Head of Christie's 20th C. Decorative Arts department and is also an occasional commentator on "Antiques Road Show."

Martin Eidelberg is a professor of art history at Rutgers and a widely acknowledged expert on Tiffany glass. He is the author of or contributor to numerous books on 20th Century Decorative Art.
