    George Wood Tiffany Studios-Style Patinated Bronze Stamp Box Sample
    Early 20th century. Marks: SAMPLE
    Ht. 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 x 2 in.

    George Wood (1840-1917) was among thousands of talented British glassworkers who emigrated to the United States in the second half of the 19th century seeking new opportunities, settling in New Jersey. After brief service in the Civil War he trained as a glassmaker with a specialty in stained glass and by the 1880's Wood was employed by Tiffany Studios, became a master craftsman in stained glass work, and even serving as a model for a window installed in the Masonic Lodge in Utica New York. The presented works have descended in Mr. Wood's family and all have been in storage since at least since Mr. Wood's retirement from Tiffany Studios in 1915. The collection includes several Tiffany works Mr. Wood appears to have salvaged from the Studios and worked on himself, using pieces of Tiffany glass and elements from lighting. The result, a century after his death, is a rare trove of artisanal work, lacking the stamp of Tiffany but made with the skill and spirit of the age.
