Tiffany produced various engraved designs overlaid on an "Antique" pattern ground. This iteration, aka "Custom Engraved," essentially stands alone as a distinct pattern.

It is deeply and intricately chased, and as Carpenter notes in his volume "Tiffany Silver," "exceedingly heavy." He also confirms that it is "deeply engraved" and dates it from the 1890s. That dating may explain some of the Aesthetic qualities of the design, namely the fern-like elements that form the margins around the... Click for details
