Tiffany & Co Repoussť Sterling Silver Water Pitcher, 1870-91
This wonderful sterling water pitcher is in a classic form with a globular body and a wide, round neck with a slightly flared edge.
Exuberant foliate repousse decoration consists of various leaves, ferns and flowers. The bold 'C'-scroll handle is also similarly decorated. The dense execution
of the exotic scenery is stunning against the stippled background.
A lovely foliate cursive style monogram 'J E Le R' is engraved underneath.
This lovely sterling silver pitcher is marked underneath 'TIFFANY & Co/3077 MAKERS 8213/ STERLING SILVER/ 925-1000 M".
The 'M' mark was used from 1869-91 and according to Tiffany Silver by Charles Carpenter, the 3077 pattern number dates this design to the early 1870's. It
measures 7 inches high, weighs 25.20 troy ounces and it is in wonderful and crisp antique condition.
