This exceptional and desirable sterling silver and copper inlay pitcher is the work of the iconic Tiffany & Co. The intricate wave motif is a prime example of the Asian-inspired influence of Edward C. Moore, the notable head of Tiffany's silver department for over two decades. The darkened coloration of the copper is thanks to the inlay technique known as niello, where a blackened copper mixture is added as a powder or paste between the engraved silver, creating the desired contrasting effect.  

Bears full Tiffany & Co. silver marks with the date letter "M" for Edward C. Moore, dating this pitcher between 1869 and 1891.

7" wide x 6" deep x 7 1/4" high
