Gold Aurene Vase and "Platinum" Aurene Vase

While both vases bear the same factory shape number and Gold Aurene coloration, when these handmade pieces are shown side by side, they chow considerable variation. The vase on the left exhibits the classic coloration of early Gold Aurene while the one on the right has a distinct silvery blue tone and blue highlights. Paul V. Gardner says that the name Platinum Aurene was not found in the factory records. Rather he says that Gold Aurene sometimes developed a silvery tone and when found they seem to be erroneously called Platinum Aurene.

From Corning to L.A.

from Lisa Ackerman Baldwin

If you are like me, you missed the exhibit on Tiffany Mosaics at the Corning Museum of Glass. However, if you are interested in the subject there will be a lecture NEXT THURSDAY, February 1st at the Huntington Library given by the curator of the exhibit herself, Kelly Conway! This lecture is free to the public and starts at 7:30 pm.

Here's the link to the event: Lecture And here is the link to the exhibit that closed January 7th at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. Tiffany Mosaic Exhibit

PS if you are able to make an afternoon of it too, you can see the collection of 32 Tiffany Favrile vases still on exhibit at The Huntington Library. The exhibit isn't huge, but still very worthy of a gander. Plus...it's The Huntington!!! WHAT'S not to LIKE??
