For sale is a complete set of very nice blotter corners made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The pattern is the ever popular and highly collected "Pine Needle" desk set pattern. The blotter corners are approximately 5 3/4" tall by 5 3/4" wide. The diagonal measurement is 8 1/8" long. These are large blotter corners.
The blotter corners displays one of the nicest Tiffany green/brown with accents of red patina that I have seen on blotter corners in quite some time. The acid etched pattern of pine needles has been a really sought after popular pattern among LCT Tiffany Studios desk set collectors for many, many years.
The blotter corners are considered to be in excellent condition. There are no dents or dings. One of the blotters corners shows significant wear to the patina on the underside. This was probably caused from an arm resting on it through the years when in use. This wear cannot be seen when in use and is considered insignificant in determining the value of the complete set. There are also a few minor ink stains on some of the underside bottom. The blotter corners are all signed on the bottom with the impressed "Tiffany Stvdios New York" signature mark. The typeset is the very early very small font mark and there is a small letter "v" in Studios. These are the earliest of the marks on Tiffany Studios desk set pieces.
Truly a quality find in very good to excellent condition. Blotter corners are much rarer and harder to find than the long ones. There are 19" and 12" in length rectangular ones in this desk set pattern. The 19" are much more commonly found than the shorter 12" ones. You rarely see the blotter corners. Those of you who collect Pine Needle desk set items made by Tiffany Studios, New York will surely welcome these blotter corners as a new addition. I'm positive the buyer will be delighted with their purchase. Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since these have no number and a very early small letter font mark I would say these blotter corners were made circa 1895-1898.
