ABOUT: Beautiful antique repousse TIFFANY & CO. Sterling Silver compote / taza / centerpiece. Circa 1877-1891!! So rare to own a piece of historic Tiffany. In the highly collectible and sought after ornate floral and fern repousse design - lovely. Tiffany made tea and vanity sets in this pattern. NO MONOGRAMS anywhere on the piece. MEASUREMENTS: Nice size and a lot of heavy solid sterling silver in this piece! Weighs in around 570 grams of silver!! Measuring 9 inches in diameter, and stands about 3 inches high. The mark indicates this piece dates from 1877-1891 under the directorship of Edward Moore. IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES: This item is in beautiful age appropriate condition considering it is over 120 years old, but has one shallow pinhead ding to the smooth center. So this is not a mint condition item. Other than that, some surface wear mostly from polishing and some wear to the base as seen in pics along with a few stubborn tarnish spots which I would consider age appropriate. Lightly hand polished with the dark patina in the background which makes the repousse design stand out.
