TIFFANY Audubon Sterling Silver 24 Piece Dessert Set
Audubon by Tiffany Sterling Silver 24 piece dessert set. Includes the following: 12 - 9" Knives with stainless Tiffany blades and 12 - 7 1/4" Forks with gold-washed tines. This set is circa 1950 and has wonderful pattern detail, the likes of which cannot be found in Audubon flatware produced today.
Japanese by Tiffany was designed in 1871, during the most innovative period in the history of Tiffany silver, and it is still one of the most popular of all Tiffany patterns. Audubon was later produced, based off of the Victorian Japanese pattern. The flowing designs of branches and twigs with leaves, buds, flowers and exotic birds
were entirely different from anything in American silver at that time. The Japanese pattern was a direct result of the interest in exotic cultures that became widespread in the late nineteenth century. Each piece of Audubon is decorated with intricate designs adapted from nineteenth century
Japanese bird paintings, with eight species represented. The back of each piece has complementary designs derived from Japanese flowers.
