Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: A extremely rare and unusual Tiffany & Co. Sterling Silver Sewing 8 Spool Thread Holder / Basket. Measures approximately 6 1/2"x6 1/2"x6" and weight in sterling is 335 grams With four posts that each measure approximately 1.25" and can hold 4 large or 8 small spools (2 on each posts). Please note the 4 pierced crescents between the spools used to cut your thread after the length needed for your needlework has been pulled. The Basket holder is on three curved shell feet and had a pierced and beaded articulated handle with a monogrammed cartouche flanked by shells. The sides are pieced and the rim is chased with a greek key pattern. The proper Tiffany hallmarks help us date this piece c. 1870-75. This incredible Solid Sterling Basket / Holder was more than likely a special custom order or done for one of the many International Exhibitions Tiffany participated in. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate.
