Tiffany Sterling Silver Lidded Caviar Bowl - SOLD
This has to be the height of luxury, a Tiffany silver caviar bowl with lid and clear glass liner. Of course it can also be used for jam or honey. The Sterling silver bowl stands on a generous foot, while the bowl itself is elegantly pierced at the top. The lid has a finial and has a reeded design along the rim. The glass bowl sits comfortably inside the silver jar. There is an insert for a serving spoon. However the original spoon was missing. As I felt it must have a spoon, I have replaced it with an elegant Georgian silver spoon, London silver marked, circa 1835. I realize this is just over Georgian, more William IV in date, but in style it is definitely simple Georgian. And this bowl harks back to Georgian designs.
On the bottom of the foot, the Tiffany & Co Sterling silver mark has been clearly marked with the 'm' which indicates John C. Moore II who was director of Tiffany’s between 1907-1947. The stamp reads: Tiffany & Co 18423 Makers 1650 Sterling Silver 925-1000 M L49.
The condition is good except for a minor small dent at the rim of the bowl, over which the lid fits snugly. There is a monogram, V J H.
Although the date mark is wide ranging, in the style of both the lidded bowl and the monogram, I would say it dates from the 1920’s.
