Catalogue Note

The Padova pattern is named for the Italian city where this design is crafted, and a number of pieces were designed specifically for Italian cuisine, such as the Parmesan cheese knife, pasta server, and fish servers. This set also contains many rare and difficult to find cutlery and serving pieces. While certain pieces are still available at Tiffany & Co., many are no longer produced. Tiffany currently retails only a five-piece place setting in this pattern, as well as a number of the serving pieces.
