    cf. A. C. Frelinghuysen, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Laurelton Hall, New York, 2006, pp. 100 and 102.
    This teapot is in the same pattern as the tea service from Louis C. Tiffany's home on Long Island, Laurelton Hall. The service was sold at the Parke-Bernet Galleries auction of the collection of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation in September 1946. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art now owns the teapot, creamer and waste bowl; a covered sugar bowl, possibly from a different service, is in a private collection.

    The shape and decoration of this teapot is similar to forms used by Tiffany Studios for both a bronze lamp base and a pottery vase.
