TIFFANY STUDIOS. ZODIAC ACID ETCHED BRONZED INKWELL~~~~

- Item Not Available
I have a very nice Desk Set piece made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The Item is an Inkwell and it is done in Tiffany's highly collected "Zodiac Pattern".
The Inkwell displays a very nice Acid Etched Metal Flake textured finish with a wonderful deep Bronze Patina. There is a Crab on the top lid of the inkwell to represent the astrological sign of "Cancer". I have heard that some dealers call the Bronze patina an "Alligator Brown". I think that was because of the Acid Etched Flakes with the Bronze gives it that Alligator Texture.
The Inkwell is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no dents, or dings. It has its original clear glass inkwell insert. The insert has no issues, not even a flea bite. The Inkwell is properly signed on the bottom "Tiffany Stvdios" and the model number "842". When you see Tiffany Studios and the "u" in Studios is substituted with a "v", it is considered to be an earlier mark.
Those of you who collect Zodiac and want and excellent example with a Great Patina do not let this one slip by. This Inkwell was made circa 1900-1910.
