Rare mixed metal pitcher with lots of bugs. Made by Tiffany & Co. in New York, ca 1880. Globular with drum-form neck, small lip spout, and c-scroll handle. Modish insects—dragon fly, grasshopper, and butterfly—creep and dart among fluid and interlaced grass stalks applied to hand-hammered sterling silver ground heightened with floral engraving and copper inlay. A superb integration of Japonesque and Craftsman. Interlaced script monogram engraved to underside. Fully marked including pattern no. 3077, no. 65, and phrase “Sterling-silver / and / other metals”. Fine condition.

Dimensions: H 7 1/4 in. x W 7 1/2 x D 5 1/4 in. Weight: 23.5 troy ounces. #BS176
