A very fine example of “acid etched ” Tiffany silver dating from the very early 20th century – 1902-1907
This type of decoration was popular in the early 1900’s and Tiffany perfected this art form.
This tall and elegant wine ewer has acid etched deocration of leaves on the neck and the lower part of the body and base. This trailing leaf decoration has been repeated around the shoulders – this time by repousse work so making the leaves three dimensional
Originally for serving wine this jug would also make a superb water pitcher
