Pencil sketch illustrates the lab where the artist worked at Tiffany Furnaces in Corona, Queens, New York. Below sketch is text by artist describing the experimental end of the lab "where I spent many lonely hours. The home of Favrile glass". Nash also explains that in this space was a silk thread that stretched from the floor to the clock to alert him of visitors.

"LHNash, 1926" signed and dated in pencil below sketch.
