DATE OF MANUFACTURE 1902-1907
MAKER Tiffany of New York
DIMENSIONS 41cms high
WEIGHT 920 grams
PRODUCT CODE EA.GM95.12

A very fine example of “acid etched ” Tiffany silver dating from the very early 20th century – 1902-1907

Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design incised in the metal.

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

Excellent condition.
