Luxury and comfort arrive for the season in our beautiful Louis C. Tiffany Magnolia Shawl.
Louis C. Tiffany's pioneering use of opalescent glass allowed his artisans to paint with glass, enabling the creation of his extraordinary windows. This lovely shawl is inspired by a landscape window in the collection of the New-York Historical Society. Painterly swathes of translucent color sweep across the magnolia's landscape with lead interwoven to mimic the contours of a magnolia's branches.
