This exceptional 684-piece silver and parcel-gilt silver flatware service by Tiffany & Co. features the rare and highly coveted Florentine pattern. This intricate motif was among the firm’s most labor-intensive and costly to create. Every elegant scroll and acanthus leaf is masterfully executed with a depth and richness that is found only in Tiffany's finest creations. Originally designed in 1900, Florentine was only created until 1934, adding to the pattern’s scarcity and desirability. Containing 684 total pieces, this incredible service for 18 is truly a once-in-a-lifetime find for this rare Tiffany pattern. 

Florentine is beloved for its intricacy, superior design and rarity. The pattern was designed by premier Tiffany artisan Paulding Farnham, a gifted sculptor who studied the art of silversmithing directly under Edward C. Moore, head designer at Tiffany & Co. from 1868 to 1891. His talent is evident in the Florentine pattern, which exhibits not only incredibly deep and rich chasing, but magnificent proportion. Farnham was responsible for Tiffany’s most elaborate works during his tenure, and was called upon to create such important commissions as the Admiral Dewey presentation sword and the famed Adams Gold Vase housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The service is housed in its original fitted and labeled chest. Each piece is marked “Tiffany & Co. Sterling Pat. 1900.”
