Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boxed Set of Louis C. Tiffany, "Dragonflies" Engraved Correspondence Cards

Inspired by wildlife and botanical sources, Louis Comfort Tiffany and other turn-of-the-century artists employed dragonflies as a favorite motif to convey the beauty and delight of the natural world. 

The design for these 25 elegant, gold-embossed boxed set of correspondence cards takes as its inspiration a hair ornament (ca. 1904) that depicts, in precious materials, a pair of delicate dragonflies resting on dandelions
