Lead sentence[edit]

I don't see how L.C. Tiffany could have started producing glass in 1848 since he was born in 1848. Maybe his father (the founder of Tiffany's) produced the glass or maybe it is just a mistake. Please clarify/fix. 71.194.38.54 (talk) 21:26, 31 December 2009 (UTC)Larry Siegel

A merger[edit]

This page constitutes a merger between a number of articles about various types of glass used by and/or created by Louis Comfort Tiffany. All these articles had been listed as Architecture or Glass (or something) related stubs. It seemed pointless to have technical info pertaining to one individual scattered over several articles, all very short.

I have not yet deleted anything, pending further discussion and critique of what I have done. I do not know what sources to cite, not having written the original articles, and suspecting that they were written by someone with first-hand experience and technical expertise rather than scholarship on the particular topic.

See Streamer glass, Fracture glass, Fracture-streamer glass, Favrile glass.
