A bit about Boston’s Tiffany Treasure
Built between 1899 and 1902 for businessman and art collector Frederick Ayer, the Ayer Mansion is the only surviving residence created by American artist and designer, Louis Comfort Tiffany.
Named a National Historic Landmark in 2005, the Ayer Mansion exemplifies what one critic of the day called Tiffany’s “dumbfounding versatility.” At the Ayer Mansion, Tiffany-designed stone and glass mosaics, graceful metalwork, Favrile glass vases, custom furniture, intricate plaster work, elaborate art glass windows, and unexpected architectural flourishes all work together to create a cohesive masterpiece.
We hope you will join us for this wonderful tour and lecture of the Ayer Mansion and stay a bit to for our Champagne Social.
