Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - GLASS #2

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

We are finishing off the features for the month of April with this beautiful Tiffany chandelier.

“Hispano-Moresque Electrolier”

By Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933)

I love the word "Electrolier" - I think that I'm going to start calling chandeliers "electroliers" (lol).  This is a "Tiffany" - I'm sure that we are all familiar with "Tiffany lamps" designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany &/or his "Tiffany Studios."  The pictures above do not depict the true colors.  The colors of the glass used in this electrolier are earthy olive green, peachy pink, coppery orange and maise yellow.    The design is the typical style used by Tiffany: "Art Nouveau".
