For Sale is a Bronze Tray and it is made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The Tazza or Compote is a nice size as it measures 9 3/4" in diameter. It stands 1 1/8" tall. The Round foot has a diameter of 3 3/4". This Patina, is known as a Gold Acid Etched or Dore' finish. This is actually 18 KT Gold Plate on top of the acid etched finish. The base metal is bronze.
The Compote displays a Brilliant Acid Etched Dore', "French" for Gold Patina. It has an acid etched small flake textured finish. The outer edge of the tray has a wonderful impressed Arts and Crafts design similar to a Greek Key pattern. The Compote tray is supported by a round foot that has substantial weight and is quite solid. This is the first time I have ever owned this Tray from Tiffany Studios. I would consider this particular compote to be some what Hard to Find with this particular pattern.
The Compote is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no major dents or dings to the piece. The round outer edge is not perfectly round but for the most part it is. The Dore' Patina is about as good as it gets. This piece has minimal wear. There is minor staining on the underside bottom. The piece is signed on the bottom with "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed mark along with the model number "1744" impressed as well.
Tiffany started using a 3 digit number for his Fancy Desk Set goods after 1902 subsequently this piece was made circa 1905-1915.
