Rare Japonesque mixed metal tray. Made by Tiffany & Co. in New York, ca 1878. Square with curved sides and straight edges. Two birds soar and glide. One is viewed from below and the other from above (that is, from bird’s eye). An original and jokey design incorporating the exotic flattened Japanese perspective. Feathers are gold, and beaks, eyes, and wispy, dangly talons are copper. Crescent frame engraved with calligraphy-style presentation dated 1879. Ground hand hammered. Corner leaf-and-scroll supports.

Fully marked including pattern no. 5168 (first produced in 1878) and phrase “Sterling-Silver / -and- / Other Metals”. Excellent condition.

Dimensions: H 1 x W 9 5/8 x D 9 1/2 in. Weight: 24 troy ounces. #BU336
