Tiffany Piece w/Glass - Questions

Postby jacksonsvl19l » Sun Nov 08, 2015 11:41 pm

Hello Again. I'm wondering if the glass insert is original to the piece. It is signed Steuben on the bottom of the glass. It fits like a glove, so perfectly it makes me think it is original. In my research I found some pieces of Tiffany silver with glass signed Stevens & Williams, founder of Steuben Glass.
Also, what is this piece used for.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

I'm thinking mustard pot...

I would have added that to my previous message, but I cannot remember how to edit a message on this forum. Anyone know?

Can't quite make out the pattern number, looks like it might be '17336', which would date first production to 1909, the 'm' mark was used from 1907-47. Personally, doubt the liner is original to the piece, the engraving is covered, at a slightly awkward point, by the pierced gallery - with that rim, the glass appears to be perhaps a small bulb-forcing vase, or maybe a jam jar that had a lid resting on the indentation. Steuben can sometimes be dated by the mark, keeping in mind that their marks are also faked - might have a glass expert take a look at it. Size can be helpful in determining what a piece was used for, with that built-in drip plate, suspect it might have been for something a bit messy, there are all sorts of possibilities, a jam jar or syrup jug, with that open base, it may even have been a holder for a commercial container of some sort of sauce - hard to tell, really...

Using the '17336' pattern code in an online search, found that your item originally held a lidded china honey pot made by Lenox and also marked for Tiffany...
