A Tiffany Renaissance Revival Silver-Mounted Glass Jug
Designed by Paulding Farnham, Tiffany's greatest designer of the period and master of Renaissance-style jewelry. The body is of glass, but cut to look like rock crystal: in panels, with trophies of dolphins emerging from vases.<br /><br />
The piece is featured and illustrated in a glowing review of Farnham's work published in The International Studio, 1906.<br /><br />
The glass is mounted with a silver handle formed as a winged caryatid emerging from a dolphin's mouth, the cover with a winged mermaid finial above Renaissance strap work and foliate decoration.<br /><br />
Engraved on the rim are initials ESB, and the top of the rim is marked: Tiffany & Co. Makers C / sterling silver 16191 780.
