Those collared Tiffany pieces were referred to as tel el Armana, and the ric rac inciced appearing design called intarsia. Obviously, Carder produced many of his Tyrian, Tiffany blue and brown Aurene items In a similar manner. I would imagine these were Inspired by Tiffanys productions
Those vases In the Huntington appeared to be affixed with little eyes at the base. I trust that care was taken in doing so and that the metal is covered with a soft material. I say that because in a recent visit to Evergreen House in Baltimore the person who mounted one similarly cracked the base of one of the most beautiful Tiffany lava pieces Ive ever seen. It was really upsetting.

The Tiffany lamp at CMOG was donated by Jay and Mickey Doros Jay Doros is alive and well.
A Note of Appreciation To Lisa Ackerman Baldwin
from Paul Doros
I dont think Ill have an opportunity to visit the Huntington and see the Sirott Tiffany collection, so Id like to thank Lisa for supplying the images and a vivid description of the exhibition. However, Id like to provide a minor correction. My parents, Micki and Jay Doros, who donated the damaged Peacock lamp to CMoG and which Steve Koob did such a phenomenal job of restoring, are both alive. Perhaps of greater importance, my dad, still an active collector, hasnt broken anything of significance lately.
