A New Light on Tiffany – Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls

After reading Susan Vreeland’s Clara and Mr. Tiffany, I looked for more information on the real story, and found it in a wonderful coffee table book full of pictures of the real Clara Driscoll and the other women who worked with her.

Margaret K. Hofer, Martin Edelberg, and Nina Gray’s A New Light on Tiffany

Great color pictures of Tiffany lamps, vases, and a clock – all designed by Clara – and, historically correct, with excerpts from Driscoll’s round robin letters with her mother and sister.

The book’s ending resembles a yearbook, with pictures and descriptions of “The Tiffany Girls.”

I enjoyed it as much, if not more, than the fiction – but, I never would have looked for Clara Driscoll without Vreeland’s book.
