Emma Stanley Kelly (1885-1969) kept this autograph book during the years she worked in the Women's Glasscutting Department at Tiffany Studios. Many of her fellow "Tiffany Girls" dedicated poems and good wishes to her, accompanied by charming watercolor sketches of nature-themed subjects similar to those they were rendering in glass. The sketches constitute the only artwork linked to individual Tiffany Girls.
