Catalogue Note

Edward C. Moore's drawing for the "Daisy Work" pattern is dated October 30, 1872, making it among the earliest of Moore's Japanese-style pieces, antedating Tiffany's Japanese-inspired pieces shown at the 1876 Philadelphia and 1878 Paris exhibitions.  The design also shows the influence of Christopher Dresser, with whom Moore was collaborating during this period.  John Loring's Magnificent Tiffany Silver, p. 34, reproduces a teapot of this pattern, but without the additional engraved foliate decoration seen here around the applied daisies and bars.
