Favrile is different from other iridescent glasses because its color is not just on the surface, but embedded in the glass. The original trade name Fabrile was derived from an Old English word, fabrile, meaning “hand-wrought” or handcrafted.[8] Tiffany later changed the word to Favrile “since this sounded better”.Some of the distinguishing colors in Favrile glass include “Gold Lustre,” Samian Red,” Mazarin Blue,” “Tel-al-amana” (or Turquoise Blue), and Aquamarine.
