I have a Tiffany & co. Sterling ewer that was part of a tea

Customer Question

I have a Tiffany & co. Sterling ewer that was part of a tea service that I was told only three sets were made. It is stamped with the Broadway address under the Tiffany & co. Could you advise where I could obtain additional info about this piece?

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as a dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

How tall is the ewer?

Please send a photo of the ewer.

Can you send me a photo of the marks on the bottom?

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

Thanks Doris. I have some paperwork from Tiffany & co and will get back to you when I find it. THere is a picture of the tea set with a full page picture of the ewer in a book about Tiffany & co which also has the name of the gentleman that made it. I also have four other pieces that I would be interested in consulting you; also Tiffany Hollowware.

I do not accept requests for phone calls. I give my best answers in thoughtful writing.

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. There are extra charges for phone calls. I do not send pop-ups.

I can take your ewer only in this one question.

Kind regards,

Doris

Can you send a photo of the ewer and one of the marks?

If you find the papers, please tell me the maker.

Kind regards,

Doris
