History in the Raw (The bare facts of history that you don't get to read very often)

My name is Jack Stanley, I have studied history for many years. This blog is about history in a more raw view, not over done. I often use original materials to bring a historic event or story to life or an interview I may have done with the person mentioned. If you cook a vegetable too long it loses much. The same can be said of many histories. They are the history of the history written before it. Over done history. THIS IS HISTORY IN THE RAW. Comments send to phonograph78@hotmail.com

When Louis Comfort Tiffany redesigned the interior of the White House.. 1882-3.... He did it in a big way for President Chester A. Arthur ..

The great entrance screen put into the White House in 1882-3 by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Here you see office seekers posing for the camera.Here is the entrance with out the office seekers
This is a good view of that amazing piece of work by Tiffany, which sadly does not exist today.
Every room bore the unmistakable stamp of Tiffany.
Chester A. Arthur 1829-1886. He was known as elegant Arthur for his extravagant tastes and lavish parties. He was James A. Garfield's Vice President and on the death of Garfield, Arthur took over not only the office but the total redesigning of the White House.
Louis Comfort Tiffany 1848-1933...Tiffany was responsible for a totally new style of leaded colored glass that revolutionized the entire world of fashion and decoration.
The East Room, which at this time looked more like the main hall of a Hudson River Steamer.The dinning room
The other side of the screen
The libraryA little piece of pattern for the main entrance. You can see the intricate design and colors that were a part of that amazing piece of Victorian art.




In 1882 the very dapper Chester A. Arthur, President of the United States got sick of all the old stuff he saw sitting around the White House. Now to him that stuff was junk, not the priceless artifacts of unmentionable value that we today know them to be.
But it was 1882 and to the eyes of the Victorian is was passe'

...30 wagon loads of history were carted out of the White House and put on a public auction. In that batch were chairs from the administration of James Monroe. Andrew Jackson's standing desk, Lincoln's desk, clocks, tables, chairs, all went the way of the auctioneers block..

Then the very modern Arthur hired Louis Comfort Tiffany to totally redesign the interior of the White House. No room was safe from his styling. There were just a few that were not changed.

The great piece was the multi colored glass screen in the entrance to the White House. It was Tiffany's masterpiece. It was made of red, white, and blue glass in a gathering of other colors in a background. The patterns included American eagles, and a shield with stripes, stars, and the initials U.S. It was massive in every way you can imagine.

The White House would remain in this Tiffany style for but only 20 years. In 1902 another President, Theodore Roosevelt, who was not into fancy stuff and frills had the architects McKim, Mead, and White bring the house back to a more colonial style. The first thing to go was the screen.

The great glass panel by Tiffany that cost $15,000 to make was purchased for $275 by a real estate developer, and it ended its days at the Belvedere Hotel in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland, which burned down in 1923. That was the end of that great piece of art.
But for 20 years the White House was Tiffany palace. After 1902 most of it went into the trash.

Louis Comfort Tiffany

LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY.

Louis Comfort Tiffany c 1908.jpg

Louis Comfort Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of American jeweler Tiffany and Company. He served as the design director for Tiffany from 1902-1918.

LCT began his career as a watercolorist. He achieved enough success to exhibit at the American Water Color Society and the National Academy in the 1870’s and at Paris’s Universal Exposition in 1878. [1] In 1879, he founded an interior design company, winning commissions to redecorate the homes of Mark Twain and Cornelius Vanderbilt, as well as the White House. [2]

Around this time, Tiffany also began experimenting with pottery and glass making. His work in these mediums brought him fame. In 1885, he opened the Tiffany Glass Company. Over the next two decades, Tiffany created objets d’art, lamps, and pottery featuring Favrile glass, a type of iridescent glass that he patented in 1894, and stained glass. His pieces won him wide acclaim, including a Grand Prize at Paris’s International Exhibition in 1900.

As of 1902, when he began to work at Tiffany's jewelry design department, he had not yet tried his hand at jewelry. [3] When he began to create, his style was clear. LCT’s jewelry featured designs inspired by nature (e.g., dragonflies, vines, flowers), mythology (e.g., Medusa), and ancient history. Constructed in yellow gold, his pieces were often embellished with enamel and set with semi-precious gemstones like moonstone, tourmaline, and garnet. The jewels were well received and remain excellent examples of the Art Nouveau style. Julia Munson, a designer in the Arts and Crafts movement, was often one of his key collaborators.


Notes

  1. John Loring, Louis Comfort Tiffany at Tiffany and Company. 240.
  2. John Loring, Tiffany Jewels, 170.
  3. There is apparently a disagreement about when, exactly, Louis Comfort Tiffany became design director at Tiffany. Loring dates the position to 1902 when Charles Lewis Tiffany died and his son inherited the firm. However, other sources suggest that he became director in 1908 when Paulding Farnham resigned from the position because of artistic conflicts with LCT. (see Zapata).

In this book, Loring claims to restore the “dissociation” between Tiffany and Company and the artistic endeavors of Louis Comfort Tiffany. When Loring took over in 1979, he claims that “there was not a single design of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s in the company’s collections, nor any mention of him in the company’s literature beyond the fact that he had been named its first design director in 1902 and that this jewelry, as well as his many decorative objects, had been retailed by Tiffany” (8). The book’s aim, therefore, is to emphasize LCT’s importance to Tiffany and Company’s history. Somewhat informative. Great photos.

History in the Raw (The bare facts of history that you don't get to read very often)

My name is Jack Stanley, I have studied history for many years. This blog is about history in a more raw view, not over done. I often use original materials to bring a historic event or story to life or an interview I may have done with the person mentioned. If you cook a vegetable too long it loses much. The same can be said of many histories. They are the history of the history written before it. Over done history. THIS IS HISTORY IN THE RAW. Comments send to phonograph78@hotmail.com
