Sold


For sale is a very rare desk set item made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The pattern is the ever popular and highly collected "Grapevine" desk set pattern. This is known as a Mucilage Pot in the Tiffany Studios Grapevine desk set catalog pages. This piece is quite petite as it stands only 2 7/8" tall to the top of the ball on the lid with attached brush underneath and only 2 1/8" tall without the lid. The piece is 2 3/16" in diameter at its bulbous bottom.

The Mucilage pot displays a squat form with a lid on top and a very small ball finial to lift the cover off. It has a brush that is attached to the underside of the lid. The pot without the lid resembles a volcano shape. This Mucilage pot has an acid etched pattern of a grapevine wine with grape leaves and grapes etched throughout. It has a wonderful Tiffany brown patina with the Verdi Green in its recessed areas. This has been a very popular pattern among LC Tiffany Studios collectors for years.

This Mucilage pot is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or to any of the metal. The piece has some patina wear as you can see areas of the copper plating peeking through the brown patina. The quality is very good considering the fact that when these were bought they were used for their purpose and many of these simply did not survive! You can find the bottoms and they are usually missing the lid with its brush. Once the brush wore out I don't know if the consumer could buy a replacement. I suspect they couldn't so they threw the lid away, thus the reason for so many bottoms with no lids. The Mucilage pot is signed on the underside bottom with the micro "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed signature mark. There is no model or pattern number.

Truly a rare, quality find in very good to excellent condition. Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since this does not have a pattern number it is earlier than this time frame. This Mucilage pot was made circa 1895-1898 based on the micro impressed mark and no pattern number. I'm quite sure the collector will be very pleased with their purchase. This piece will help complete that Grapevine desk set. This is one of the hardest pieces to find. I have also seen the Pine Needle collectors use this as well if they cant find one done in the Pine Needle pattern.

I show an ad from Tiffany Studios in 1915 in my last picture. You can clearly see he mixes the 2 patterns together. Tiffany Studios never named either of these patterns as modern day collectors have. He simply called them etched metal. Today's collectors have separated the 2 patterns by name, Grapevine and Pine Needle. That is why you can miss and match some of the desk set pieces shapes. This is what Tiffany Studios did to begin with.
