For sale is a very nice letter rack made by Tiffany Studios, New York. The pattern is the ever popular and highly collected "Pine Needle" desk set pattern. This is known as the 3 tier 2 compartment letter rack in the Tiffany Studios Pine Needle desk set pattern. The letter rack is rather large as it stands 6 3/16" tall, 10" wide and 2 3/8" deep.
The letter rack displays a nice Tiffany green/brown organic patina. The acid etched pattern of Pine Needles and Pine Cones has been a popular pattern among LC Tiffany collectors for years. The letter rack has two toned green Favrile opalescent glass and is considered one of the most desired in the desk set pieces to collect. There are two compartments for letter storage with this piece. The letters cannot be more than 9 1/2" wide as this is the inside fit for both compartments. The patina is outstanding as you can see vivid reds and greens with brown coloring.
The letter rack is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or to any of the glass or frame. I cannot find any excuses for this letter rack. The letter rack is signed on the bottom with the "Tiffany Studios New York" impressed signature mark. There is also the model number “1008” impressed just underneath.
Tiffany started numbering his desk set pieces usually with a 3 digit number after 1902. Since this has a 3 digit number it was made circa 1902-1915. I'm positive the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. Truly a quality find in excellent condition.
