Catalogue Note

A smaller water pitcher of this form (height 7 3/4in.) is illustrated in John Loring, Magnificent Tiffany Silver, 2001, p. 40, and also bears French contol marks.  Loring suggests that the presence of the French control marks may indicate that the smaller pitcher was shown at the 1878 Paris Exposition.  The present lot was also likely shown at the Exposition.
