“An exceedingly fine and rare American silver “mixed-metal” pitcher in the “Japanesque” style by “Tiffany & Co.” New York City, circa 1880, designed by Edward C. Moore”
This piece is being sold for the benefit of a mid-west foundation dedicated to the education of artists, curators, and administrators of America’s rich cultural heritage of the visual and fine arts and has not been made available publicly for decades. The foundation’s executive director purchased this piece from a private collector in 1977, who had owned it for many years. It is in superb condition, and features butterflies and carps in a fish pond with bamboo stalks against a hand-hammered background. The patina is undisturbed.
