Notes and References[edit]

Added two new sections in order to support citations.--Михал Орела (talk) 20:07, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Error in the origin of Favrile[edit]

The original text

The trade name Favrile was derived from an Old English word, fabrile, meaning handcrafted.

has been commented out and replaced by

The original trade name Fabrile was derived from an Old English word, fabrile, meaning "hand-wrought" or handcrafted.[1] Tiffany later changed the word to Favrile "since this sounded better". [2]

with supporting reference to the Warmus book on Tiffany. The point is that the original was "Fabrile" and then later changed by Tiffany into Favrile.

In addition

(Or 'French' as per the reference in the Louis Tiffany biography, but means the same).

has been commented out until a formal supporting citation can be given. --Михал Орела (talk) 20:25, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Citations needed[edit]

I have added a "citation needed" mark for the text

"Favrile glass is distinguished by brilliant or deeply toned colors, usually iridescent like the wings of certain American butterflies, the necks of pigeons and peacocks, the wing covers of various beetles. (Louis Comfort Tiffany)"

Rename[edit]

I find way more sources refer to this as "Favrile Glass" than "Favrile iridescent glass. I'm suggesting we rename it to that. Thoughts anyone? Fleetflame · whack! whack! · 01:30, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Having heard no comments on the issue, I've changed the template in the article to reflect the move, and requested that Favrile glass, which redirects to this article, be deleted for the pagemove. Fleetflame · whack! whack! · 00:06, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Stained glass windows[edit]

how can a material patented in 1894 be the first used in stained glass windows, which have been around since the middle ages? at the very least, this requires clarification. i am tagging this for citation, and i'm going to give it a short lead. citation isn't forthcoming in a couple of weeks, it's gone.Toyokuni3 (talk) 14:42, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

The citation is located with the fact in the article. Since the lede is just a summary of the facts, I didn't bother to cite anything in it. Cheers! Fleetflame · whack! whack! · 00:19, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
