This exceptional service, which consists of 12 forks and 11 knives, is as beautiful as it is rare. Borrowing from japonesque aestheticism, the unique shapes with their naturalistic design elements make these pieces works of art.
The sleek, solid sterling knives have blades with serrated top edges and handles decorated with matte backgrounds and Pansy decoration on both sides. This matte finish decorates the fronts of the forks which depict on both sides wonderful entwining Morning Glory flora. The blades of the knives and backs of the forks handles are engraved 'EMS'.
The knives are stamped 'TIFFANY & CO. MAKERS/ STERLING/ 900' and the forks are stamped 'TIFFANY & CO./ STERLING'. The knives and forks measure 6.5 and just over 6 inches respectively. They weigh a combined 27.80 troy ounces and are in very good antique condition.
