A Tiffany Studios New York Favrile glass rose water sprinkler vase. The graceful vase is made of iridescent gold glass. Circa 1900. The "gooseneck" design is considered one of Tiffany's most original and delicate forms, inspired by Persian rosewater sprinklers. Tiffany first became familiar with the rosewater sprinkler through his early mentorship by Edward C. Moore of Tiffany and Company. Moore was a dedicated collector of Oriental art and a significant influence on Tiffany's aesthetic. Moore's 16th-century Persian rosewater sprinkler is now on view at the Metrpolitan Museum of Art. According to folklore, Persian rosewater sprinklers were used as "containers for tears." The vessel, named ashkdan, was meant to collect the sorrows of wives separated from their husbands. The story goes that a husband who had to go away for a prolonged period on business, war, or pilgrimage to Mecca gave an ashkdan to his wife so that she could weep into it during his absence and consequently prove how unhappy she had been without him. Tiffany promoted his rosewater sprinklers by using them as props in his infamous Egyptian Fete. An Egyptian slave girl, played by Tiffany's friend Ethel Whitman, sprinkled rosewater to herald the entrance of Cleopatra. A similar sprinkler is pictured in: "Tiffany Favrile Art Glass," by Moise S. Steeg, Jr., Atglen, PA: Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., 1997, p. 33; and in: "Tiffany at Auction," by Alastair Duncan, New York: Rizzoli, 1981, p. 19, cat. no. 27. Signed, ''997V L. C. Tiffany-Favrile''.
