$175.00 Price for the pair.

Building upon motifs drawn from classical mythology, Tiffany's "Olympian" is a highly expressive and intricately rendered design.

The theme on this companion youth spoon and fork set is "Diana and her nymphs," which was one of seventeen different subjects offered in this line.

The fork measures 6 1/4" long and is exceptionally heavy at 1.8 T. oz. Also weighty at 1.7 oz. the spoon measures 6 1/8" long, which is slightly larger than a teaspoon.

Both items are engraved "Wentworth" and "1898" on the backsides. The actual pieces, however, predate this as they are marked "Tiffany & Co," "Sterling," "Pat. 1878," and with an "M," which was used only until 1891.

They are in very fine condition. Pattern detail remains well-defined, showing negligible polishing wear. The bowl of the spoon is free of dents, nicks, or tip wear, while the fork tines are straight and free of bends or burrs, but show slight rounding at the tips. The finishes are even, with a warm patina, but show surface scratches consistent with age.
