"Treasure Chest" Inkwell by Tiffany Studios

A gilt bronze and jeweled "Treasure Chest" inkwell by Tiffany Studios New York. The gilt bronze inkwell depicts three semi-abstracted male figures, caught in the furious struggle to salvage what appears to be an ancient, gem studded treasure chest. The three muscular forms are so elegantly composed as to appear to be in the midst of a dance, the strength and violence of their motion beautifully juxtaposed by the fixed weight and regality of the seemingly ancient chest they struggle to salvage. This inkwell is remarkable not only in the beauty of its composition and its ability to convey such strenuous motion and valiant struggle, but also its reflection of the time in which it was made. The early 20th century saw an international fascination with treasures of the ancient world, as archeological digs in Italy and Egypt were so well celebrated as to influence jewelry, fashion, architecture and literature of the time. A similar inkwell is pictured in: Tiffany Lamps and Metalware: An illustrated reference to over 2000 models, by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge: Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1988, p. 435, plate 1720.

Artist: Tiffany Studios
Signed: Tiffany Studios New York 1038
