Design is for two vases. Vase on left features water lilies and vase on right features fish and seaweed; the features on these two vases represent the two types of Aquamarine glass. Vases are colored in shades of blue, green, and orange. Partial black border surrounds left, top, and right edges of drawing.
Aquamarine glass was the last major Favrile glass product developed at Tiffany Furnaces and was introduced around 1911. Leslie Nash played a crucial role in its design and production.
