For sale is a very nice desk set item made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The pattern is the ever popular and highly collected "Pine Needle" desk set pattern. This is known as a large desk calendar in the Tiffany Studios Pine Needle desk set catalog. The calendar is a good size as it stands 8 1/4" wide by 6 3/4" tall, and is 3 1/2" deep when the easel is set up. The picture or calendar window size is 5” wide by 3 5/8” tall. This is a front measurement. The back side shows a larger measurement as it is 5" wide by 3 9/16" tall.
The calendar displays an acid etched pattern of Pine Needles. It has a wonderful and beautiful Tiffany green/brown with accents of red patina. This has been a popular pattern among LC Tiffany collectors for years. This frame has original Tiffany Favrile mottled green/white opalescent glass and not the usual Kokomo green white. The acid etched pattern of Pine Needles has been a popular pattern among LC Tiffany collectors for years.The frames stands on an easel back support with 2 legs and is in excellent working condition. It still retains all of its original screws.
This calendar frame is considered to be in excellent as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or to any of the glass or frame. It stills retains all of its original calendar pages for the months and days. I believe there are 7 individual pages. The is clear glass holding these pages in the frame and appears to have been a more recent acquisition to the frame. There are tiny nibbles and a small chip to one of the corners. This is considered insignificant. The calendar shows minimal wear. I have taken pictures of all 4 corners. The quality is outstanding!! The frame is signed on the back with the "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed signature mark and the model or pattern number 939 also impressed.
Truly a quality find in excellent to mint condition. Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since this has a 3 digit number we know it was made after 1902. This calendar frame was made circa 1902-1915. I'm positive the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. The quality and condition just doesn't get any better than this one!!
