Grape Vine and Lemon Tree with Trellis Tiffany glass

Grape Vine and Lemon Tree with Trellis

ca. 1910

The bold combinations of brilliantly colored glass in this window are a testament to the skill of Tiffany’s glass chemists. This window displays many of the exceptional colors and intriguing patterns available to Tiffany’s glass selectors. Within the foliage alone, more than twenty shades of green, with streaks, spots and ripples, form the hearty leaves of the tangled grape vine. Thick, slightly convex slab glass simulates cool marble columns which, together with the straight lines of the trellis, give order to the twisting vines and hanging fruit.
