Pair of Silver-mounted Glass Flasks
mid-late 19th century
A pair of silver-mounted glass flasks (American, mid-late 19th century) made by Tiffany & Co., NY. The pair of flasks, possibly used for storing perfume, are of similar but unmatched design. The removable stoppers are marked with the initials “EVC.” The silver mounts over the cut glass bodies are decorated with raised and incised swirls, bubbles, and foliage, evoking an aquatic motif. The undersides are marked “TIFFANY & Co/ 6773M 4978 / STERLING SILVER / 2254.”
