Tiffany & Co. Set of 4 Sterling 'Vine/Gourd' Grapefruit Spoons

A matching set of 4 sterling grapefruit/citrus spoons in the 'Vine' pattern/ 'Gourd' motif by Tiffany and Co. This Japanese inspired pattern was first introduced in 1872, and bears the capital 'M' date mark circa 1869-1891 and associated with Edward C. Moore. The pattern was inactive by 1904 and obsolete by 1934, as the dyes were by then destroyed. 'Vine' was a multi-motif pattern, and the 'Gourd' motif was one of the most attractive, with the gourds, leaves and vine tendrils in 3-D on a stippled background on the front handles, with the vine tendrils continuing around to the back of the handles, displaying almost a lap over edge appearance seen in other patterns. The bowl of each spoon is deep and very sturdy, the end comes to a sharp point; spoon edges are sharp-all well designed for grapefruit. Each spoon measures 6" long and being substantially thick, weighs over an ounce per spoon, with a total weight for the four spoons being 133.6 grams or 4.3 oz troy. Condition is excellent, with very slight wear to the highest points; bowl edges are slightly rough in a couple of places, but not abraded-normal age wear, but definitely NOT worn. Script monogram on the handle backs is 'EHN'. A very nice set in a very desirable pattern, as any piece of 'Vine' in any motif is an unusual find in today's market.
