Louis C. Tiffany Mosaic Column Scarf
A 1926 photograph of the Tiffany Studios showroom on Madison Avenue features a pair of mosaic columns flanking an entrance. Drapery serves as the inspiration for the iridescent decoration, a diamond- patterned fringe and long gold tassels suspended as the column’s peacock blue fades to midnight. This Mosaic Column Scarf is based on the decoration of one of these columns now in the Metropolitan Museum’s collection of American Decorative Arts. This scarf is silk crêpe de chine and measures 64'' x 18''.
