An exquisite Antique American Tiffany and Company Silver Crumber in the ‘Saratoga’ pattern. There is a nice contrast on this piece as the handle has a lovely Aesthetic design and the blade is quite simple and elegant. Even though we are considering this piece to be a Crumber, it can definitely be used as a server for fish, meat or chicken.
The American Silver Crumber has a handle that is double-struck. This means that the design (workmanship) is presented on both the front and the back of the handle. Please note that there is also a script monogram AAL on the back of the handle.
There are four hallmarks that are located on the back of the piece. The 1st hallmark is of an “M”. This is an early mark (1854-1870) which represented Edward C. Moore, who was the head of Tiffany’s silver operations until 1891. There are also the marks Tiffany and Co. and Sterling which indicates that this article is a piece of American Silver. The 4th and last hallmark is the mark PAT. 1870 which indicates when the piece was made.
This Antique American Silver Crumber is quite practical, very attractive and can be used in a variety of ways.
