Tiffany Studios produced many of it's fine bronze objects, including lamp bases, desk items, and bowls such as this one, in NYC around the turn of the 19th C into the 20th. This particular bowl is elegant and understated, it whispers rather than shouts.
Simple enough to be taken for a Mid Century Modern piece with it's saucer shape, the modulated texture is reminiscent of the surface of ancient excavated bronzes. Truly timeless, it's simplicity expresses Tiffany's aesthetic idealism with it's beauty relying on intrinsic qualities, shape and surface, rather than on decorative embellishment. This piece displays a beautiful patina, both applied, and now after 100 years or so, authentic.
Condition is great, I see no problems to report. The back is impressed "TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK", and also the number "1708". Measures 9" in diameter, and stands 1 3/8" tall.
Fill with a pyramid of satsumas in winter, float a single water lily come summer, or simply enjoy it's classic beauty.
