Tiffany Gold Washed Sterling Woven Basket Stem Of 6 Flowers - Mexico For Sale
Beautiful Vintage Tiffany Woven Basketwith stem of 6 flowersset in a bed of white sand and some shells from Malibu. I don't know much about this.It appears to be 40 or 50 years old.Its stamped "Tiffany. Sterling. Mexico" on the bottom of thebasket as well as the base of the stem. It was originally washed with gold. Some of the gold is still there and I assume some has worn away. There is a similar condition one up on . However they must be pretty rare. I can't seem to find a reference to any other one like it no matter what I Google. Please note the photos for condition.One of the 6 flowers has the little stamens missing.Photos 4 and 5 show the Tiffany mark on the basket and stem.Photo #10 shows what it looks like under the leaves. When I purchased this at an estate sale near Riviera Gold Course in the Pacific Palisades, it had tired looking , decades old green styrofoam in the basket. I upgraded it with some nice clean white clay, some white sand...and a sprinkled a few little shells I picked up in front of Johnny Carson's old house on Point Dume in Malibu. This clearly isn't in perfect condition but it is a really unique and apparently hard to find Tiffany item. At this price I think its a good deal.
