$ 36 each, available individually
Tiffany produced a line of at least twelve "Floral" designs in the late 19th century that were offered in a wide array of pieces.
These two examples are demitasse spoons. The flowers are, left to right in the images, "Dandelion" and "Daisy."
They are respectively 4 1/4" and 3 7/8" long, and weigh just over .6 T. oz. combined. The handles are cast, which provides for more detail and relief than could be achieved using the usual drop strike method. They have ovoid bowls that retain slight traces of their original gold washes.
They are in immaculate condition. Apart from the loss of gold in the bowls, there is no evidence of wear or use. Marks are "T&C" (which is rubbed on the Dandelion example) and "STG," for sterling.
