Description

Add a little nature to your kitchen with our delightful Louis C. Tiffany Magnolia tea towel! This lovely tea towel is inspired by the Magnolia window panels ca.1885 by Tiffany Studios' (1848-1933) . Painterly swathes of translucent color sweep across the magnolia's landscape with lead interwoven to mimic the contours of a magnolia's branches.

Louis Comfort Tiffany used drapery glass to create natural-looking magnolia petals and creatively employed the lead lines as the twigs and branches of the tree. Tiffany designers, working from studies of flowers in various stages of bloom, took great care to render nature realistically.

The tea towel design is inspired by Tiffany Studios' (1848-1933) Magnolia window panels, ca. 1885. Now in the permanent collection of the The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, the three leaded-glass window panels initially graced the library of Tiffany's 72nd street home in New York City. Later they served as a transition between indoors and outdoors in the dining room of his long island estate, Laurelton Hall.
