S O L D ! Tufts Aesthetic Silverplate Biscuit Jar
DONATION TO MUSEUM. James W Tufts Silverplate Quadruple Plate Biscuit Jar, c. 1880s TUFTS Aesthetic Rolled Die Casting Biscuit box Markings on the bottom include: James W Tufts Warranted Quadruple Plate, Pattern No. 2786 and Boston. Twist handle, and a die-cast band of shell motifs and a floral pattern. The silverplate is in good condition, but the knob on the lid has lost some silverplate. The bottom of lid has light normal usage roughness. Size is app. 7" tall to top of lid finial, 9 1/2" with handle up, base 4 5/8" diam. ................This Aesthetic silverplate selection reflects many features of the Japanese Influences on the Aesthetic Movement. The sources of inspiration inspired the American craftsmen to experiment with hand tooled finishes, bands of rolled dies that speeded up the ornamentation, designs that reflected Japanese designs, including textile designs and the love of nature enjoyed by both Japanese and American cultures, which resulted in sculptural forms of nature, including the treatment of metal as if it was fabric. Although the objects were machine made, much of the decoration was done by hand, either finishing the castings of the silverplate or incising the designs. These are some of the influences among the richest creativity in production during the years 1875 to 1900.....This Aesthetic silverplate selection reflects many features of the Japanese Influences on the Aesthetic Movement.
