Tiffany Studios  Nautical  Calendar Frame 1
Tiffany Studios  Nautical  Calendar Frame 1
American, circa 1909-10
Patinated bronze
6 in high x 7 in wide x 3 in depth

A rare bronze calendar frame from the Nautical desk set by Tiffany Studios, in an acid-etched doré finish, featuring a series of aquatic and maritime motifs. The frame, raised up on a “base” formed by stylized cresting waves, features a motif of undulating blades of kelp bordered on the inner and outer edges by a design of coiled and twisted rope. Four rounded escutcheons, framed by the top borders, stand out from the swirling tendrils of the water plants, each encapsulating a distinctive depiction of a boat, including a finely detailed Viking sailing ship in the uppermost section of the frame.

The Nautical Desk Set was one of the most sculptural produced by Tiffany Studios, often featuring elaborately detailed chased decoration and three-dimensional elements which required more hand finishing than many of the more regularized desk set production lines.

This original Tiffany picture frame displays a 3” x 4 ¼” photograph and is signed on the reverse.
