About

The lustrous, golden iridescence of this large favrile Jack-in-the-Pulpit vase by Quezal is truly superb. Named after the North American perennial, this extraordinary art glass vase captures the essence of the Art Nouveau, with its graceful lines and naturalistic theme. The firm operated from 1902 until 1925, and is credited with making some of the most elegant art glass of the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements. The firm was founded in Queens, New York by master glassmakers Martin Bach, Sr., Thomas Johnson, Nicholas Bach, Lena Scholtz and Adolph Demuth. Many of these glassmakers were former employees of Tiffany Studios who decided to apply the skills they perfected to create magnificent iridescent art glass objects. Though the company existed for a relatively short period of time, the quality and brilliance of Quezal's creations is extraordinary.
