For sale is a nice set of blotter ends made by Tiffany Studios New York. These blotter ends are part of a desk set pattern called "Pine Needle" This was one of the first desk set patterns created by Louis C Tiffany. These blotter ends each measure 19 1/8" wide by 2 1/16" deep and 5/16" tall.
The blotter ends display a wonderful acid etched pattern of Pine Needles centered through each blotter. They sit inside a border of small acid etched triangles. The Patina is a deep brown with green. The etched portion of the Pine Needles show more brown than green. This is a nice set of blotter ends for your desk blotter.
The blotter ends are considered to be in very good condition. The patina shows some signs of use and wear. There is an indent in the metal on one of the blotter ends and this is pictured. It doesn't affect how they work as I tried it on a blotter and it fits just fine. The blotter ends are signed with the Impressed Tiffany Studios New York Mark along with the model number 999. Guaranteed original LCT Tiffany Studios New York.
Those of you who are collecting the Pine Needle desk set pattern this would be a nice addition. Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since these blotter ends have a 3 digit number I can dates these to have been made circa 1902-1915.
