This glass mosaic column, one of six, recalls the character of ancient Pompeiian columns and Turkish textiles. It was first displayed in the New York City showrooms of Tiffany Studios (1900–1932) and later moved to Laurelton Hall, Louis Comfort Tiffany's home on Long Island. Originally trained as a painter, Tiffany developed interests in medieval glassmaking and the ancient art of mosaic. He believed that nature should be the primary source of design, and experimented with new methods of glass manufacture to yield a wide range of color and texture.
