Aesthetic sterling silver compote. Retailed by Tiffany & Co. in New York, ca 1870. Shallow round bowl mounted to conical support on flat foot. A spare form suggestive of the Greek kylix with low-slung side handles terminating in volute scrolls with rim-mounted leaves. A cast bird with flapping wings is mounted to each scroll. Fluid and stylized flowers engraved to support. Fine craftsmanship and innovative Classicism that suggest the maker was John R. Wendt, who was active in New York during the third quarter of the 19th century.

Marked “Tiffany & Co. / 31 / 925 Sterling / New-York”. Very good condition with deep period patina.

Overall dimensions: H 7 x W 10 3/4 x D 9 1/4 in. Weight: 21.5 troy ounces. #BR515
