American Treasures Series: Tiffany Issue

On August 9, 2007, in Portland, Oregon, the Postal Service issued a 41-cent Louis Comfort Tiffany commemorative. Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, designed the stamp.

For this seventh issuance in the American Treasures Series, Noyes chose the image of a memorial window designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933). The window is "Magnolias and Irises," ca. 1908, made by Tiffany Studios (1902-1938). The leaded Favrile-glass window, 60-1/4 x 42 in. (153 x 106.7 cm), was presented to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1981 as an anonymous gift in memory of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Frank.
