Tiffany & Co 'Olympian' Antique Sterling Silver Saratoga Chip Server


Patented in 1878, the 'Olympian' pattern is one of the greatest cast patterns, almost certainly designed by Antoine Heller while at Tiffany. A multi-motif pattern, servers and place pieces in this pattern depict scenes from various Greek myths. This server depicts the story of Orpheus about the love between Eurydice and Orpheus; the scene is of Orpheus searching for his beloved. The large bowl has scrolling along the edge, and lovely piercing including a 3-leaf clover in the center.

On the back of the handle is an engraved 'JB' monogram. It is also stamped 'TIFFANY & Co./STERLING/PAT1878/C. The 'C' would date this server from 1902-1907. This rare serving piece measures 9 inches long, weighs 4.35 troy ounces and is in good condition with some (typical but not very bad) wear to the pattern highlights.
