Art Deco Desk Set
This desk set style was originally named "Art Moderne", but has been referred to as the Art Deco pattern since the 1960s. It is not known exactly when this design was developed, but it is widely accepted to have been produced in the 1920s, with production continuing through the 1930s. This pattern is one of two created by TIffany Furnaces as opposed to Tiffany Studios, the other being the Double X pattern. The items are of excellent quality and finish, yet have significant differences from the Tiffany Studios desk pieces. They are simpler in design, with more linear features and a rusticated texture. The dominant feature of the Art Deco pieces are their vibrant color.
They were produced in red, blue and green, and the enamelled colors were applied to the geometrical shapes and the linear borders. The enamelled hues complement the gilt bronze, and while the surface of the bronze resembles etching, the texture was achieved from impressions in the molds. This gives a uniformity to the pieces, as opposed to the unique character of the hand etched Tiffany Studios desk items. Most of the pieces rest on ball feet, and there were twenty-eight items produced in the Art Deco pattern. All pieces are stamped: TIFFANY STUDIOS/NEW YORK and numbered.
