A note from Tiffany & Co. on Tiffany Studios from which this vitrine originates~ “Unfortunately, there is a limited amount of information in Tiffany & Co.’s archive regarding objects made by Tiffany Studios, an entity separate from Tiffany & Co. The following are the details concerning the relationship between the two companies: Louis Comfort Tiffany, the son of Tiffany & Co.’s founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany, worked in glass and other decorative media beginning in the late 1870s. He founded many different firms, including Tiffany Glass, and Decorating Company, and Tiffany Studios. Tiffany & Co. often purchased merchandise from Tiffany Studios. Later, Louis Comfort Tiffany became the first design director of Tiffany & Co. although he continued his association with Tiffany Studios. Upon his death in 1933, Tiffany Studios ceased operations.”
