Tiffany Studios, Zodiac Calendar Holder, Great Green/Brown Patina~~~
For Sale is a Desk Set Item made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The Item for Auction is a "Calendar-Daily Memorandum" Holder and it is done in Tiffany's highly collected "Zodiac" Desk Set Pattern. The Calendar holder stands 3 7/8" tall. The backside measure 4 7/8"and the front side measures 4" wide. The two sides measure 5 5/8" deep.
The Calendar has an outstanding Verdi Green/ Brown Patina. When you open the top lid you can see the nicest Tiffany Patina in the Green Brown that I'm quite sure you haven't seen for awhile. This is the most Popular Patina in the Zodiac Desk Set Pattern. This Desk Calendar Holder displays 9 of the 12 different zodiac signs. It is heavy and quite solid for its size. It has an Arts and Crafts flare. This particular calendar was made either as a Desk or Wall model. The 2 underside eyes were designed to be hung from hooks mounted in a wall. This model is considered Rare and hard to find.
This Calendar Holder is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no major dents, or dings. It shows very minors signs of wear from use. I see a little bit of black ink stain along the middle left edge on top and side pieces. The Calendar Holder is signed on the bottom with "Tiffany Stvdios New York" Impressed mark along with the Pattern Number 1093 for the Calendar Holder in this desk set. The type set is very small and the spelling of "Stvdios" with a small letter "v" denotes this as an early mark.
Tiffany started using a 3 digit number for his Fancy Desk Set goods after 1902 subsequently this was made early circa 1902-1905. This is a quality item in the Tiffany Desk Set Items. I'm Sure the Buyer will be delighted with their purchase.
