Tiffany

 

Sold


For sale is a very nice 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 the three tier 2 compartment letter rack. It is done in the acid etched Grapevine overlay pattern in the Tiffany Studios fancy goods catalog. The letter rack is rather large as it stands 6 1/8" tall, 9 15/16" wide and 2 3/8" deep.

This letter rack displays a beautiful acid etched pattern of grapes, leaves and stems. This has been a popular pattern among LC Tiffany Studios collectors for years. It has a nice Verdi green and brown patina applied to all the metal on the letter rack including inside the compartments. This letter rack has the deep green Favrile opalescent stained glass and is considered the most desired in the desk set pieces. There are two compartments for letter storage with this piece. The letters cannot be more than 9 1/2" wide as this is the inside fit for both compartments.

This letter rack is considered to be in excellent as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or to any of the glass or frame. The bottom edge in the front and back of the letter rack shows wear as you can see the copper plate. The second tier also has this wear as well. When the item is displayed it is hard to see these areas but when held to a light at an angle you can see the wear. The letter rack is signed on the bottom with the "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed signature mark along with the impressed pattern "1008".

Truly a quality find in excellent condition. This letter rack was made circa 1905-1920. Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since this one does have a number it was made after 1902. I'm positive the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. The quality and condition of this one would be hard to beat!!

SHIPPING $45
