The vase is decorated with cranes flying in clouds. The cast silver mount with stylized ocean waves is unmarked, but it was probably made by the famous jewelry company owned by Louis Tiffany’s father. Tiffany used one of his “agate” glasses for this vase, which was then cased with a pea-green glass. The cameo-cutting at the top reveals traces of the predominantly red-orange glass beneath, which becomes more evident in the lower, undecorated portion of the vase above the silver mount. The imagery on the vase, inspired by Japanese prints, reflects the fashionable interest in Asian art at the turn of the 20th century.
