Web Description: 
This stunning and rare jack-in-the-pulpit vase was made by the Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company of Brooklyn between about 1904 and 1915. Quezal was founded by Martin Bach and Thomas Johnson, who had been blowers for Louis Comfort Tiffany, and this firm was probably the most successful emulator of Tiffany’s style. The Museum owns a vase of the same form that was made (probably earlier) by Tiffany, and another example, produced by Steuben Glass while Frederick Carder was managing director. The decoration on the back of the Quezal vase is more elaborate than that on its front, which makes one wonder how it was meant to be displayed.
