Tiffany glass

The Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington contains an outstanding collection of Tiffany glassware presented to the town by Joseph Briggs, an Accrington man who had joined Tiffany’s in the late 19th century and eventually became art director and assistant manager. The Art Nouveau vases are considered to be the most important such group in Europe. One of the most striking items is a glass mosaic exhibition piece, designed by Briggs himself and entitled Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.

would think the fact that an accylad designed the Cockatoos would be the point Entwi.

I went up there last year and thought the collection was amazing, it was very informative with numerous visual displays. The irridescent finish on some pieces are brilliant.

Well worth a trip out to.
