With deep blackberries and vines realistically flowing up the handle, Tiffany's 'Blackberry' pattern is one of their greatest naturalistic flatware patterns from the turn of the 20th century and a wonderful example of American art nouveau flatware. This delightful pattern was not made in a full line, but only select pieces.
Tiffany referred to the bowl's unique shape as 'kidney-shaped' (although it is often referred to as 'conch-shaped'). This bowl is gilded on both sides and shows slight wear to the gilding. The cartouche on the handle is monogrammed "MER."
This wonderful server is marked "TIFFANY & CO.," "MAKERS," and "STERLING," and "C." It is 9.375 inches long, weighs a hefty 3.75 troy ounces, and is in very good antique condition with very light wear to the gilding and scratches from use.
