This elegant late 19th century sterling silver serving set was made by renowned jeweler and silversmith Tiffany & Company. The matched set consists of a 10.25" long spoon and fork which have been made in Tiffany's Broom Corn pattern, designed by John T. Curran in 1890. The design features gently curving linear motifs which echo the form of Broomcorn, a tall grass that forms broad tasseled fan-shaped heads used for crafting brooms. The pair have cartouches at the end of their long handles, each of which bear a hand engraved monogram executed in script. The spoon and fork retain their original vermeil finish.
The serving set is in excellent condition and shows little sign of use. The only signs of age present consist of some slight scratching in the bowls and rubbing to portions of the hallmarks on the back of the handles which are mentioned for accuracy. The pieces are 10.25" in length and measure 2.125” across the bowls. The back of the stems are marked "STERLING", "PATENT 1890 M" along with "TIFFANY & CO." The set is substantial and has a combined weight of 260 grams.
This antique Tiffany Broom Corn serving set displays beautifully and would be a fantastic addition to an existing collection of fine antique sterling flatware. They would make a wonderful wedding or anniversary gif or may be just what you have been looking for to add your own table. A lovely and useful antique find!
