The Morse Museum (north of Orlando) has the most comprehensive Tiffany collection in the world! Objects on display include glass, pottery, jewelry, and paintings. Of special interest is the complete Byzantine chapel interior that was created for the Chicago’s World Fair in 1893. A personal favorite of mine is a stained glass window called “Feeding the Flamingoes”.
Tiffany’s life-long inspiration was nature. He described his Favrile glass as having “brilliant or deeply toned colors … iridescent like the wings of butterflies”. At the end of his career he summed up his life as a “Quest for Beauty”. More info on this spectacular collection is at: http://www.morsemuseum.org/

    Hi,
    What a magnificent display, the stained glass is just beautiful.

      The colors were so vibrant! A picture doesn’t do justice to the quality of the pieces, and the chapel was incredibly elaborate. It was a real joy to see.

  3. Love the Morse Museum (and Leu Gardens, for that matter). Both Central Florida treasures!
