T+L Reports: Jewel Boxes

In the early 1900's, designs for living were all the rage. This fall, three shows reopen the case for decoration. New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art inaugurates a gallery on October 15 devoted to the luminous work of Louis Comfort Tiffany: stained-glass windows, lamps, mosaics, Favrile vases, furniture, and more. • Both a sensualist and a perfectionist in matters of form-as-function, Dagobert Peche, a member of the Wiener Werkstätte, produced winsome furniture, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and glass, as this, his first retrospective, attests. (Neue Galerie, New York; Oct. 11-Feb. 10). • From Munich comes the glamorous and equally comprehensive
"Kreuzer Collection," an outstanding selection of Art Nouveau and Jugendstil objects and jewelry from all over Europe, by such master craftsmen as Josef Hoffmann, Georg Jensen, and René Lalique. (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Oct. 5-Jan. 19).
