Tiffany Magnolias and Irises Silk Chiffon Scarf

  • $98.00


The design on this luminous silk chiffon scarf is based on Magnolias and Irises, a Favrile leaded glass window created by the decorative artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, circa 1908. The panel depicts a landscape of irises under a flowering magnolia tree. A horizon of mountains is seen in the background. A river, interpreted as the “River of Life,” runs down the mountains to the foreground. The Art Nouveau influence that Tiffany is known for can be seen in the lines of the trees, the flowers, and the overall color scheme of blues, lavender, pink, and ivory, with the subtlest touch of green.

Favrile is an iridescent art glass that was developed by Tiffany himself (patented in 1894, first made in 1896) that richly transmits light and color. The secret is that the color is not only on the surface of the glass but embedded within the glass as well. Tiffany used this type of glass in his famous stained-glass windows, which is part of the reason why his windows were so luminous and richly colored.

The scarf is crafted from lightweight, ethereal silk chiffon and finished with traditional, artisan hand-rolled hems. The generous rectangular size of this scarf makes it eminently wearable as a scarf or shawl, suitable for stylish day or evening wear. 

71" x 20". Dry clean only.
