This American sterling silver child's porringer is an incredibly rare form for the renowned Tiffany & Co. Adorned in the beautiful blooms of the Chrysanthemum pattern, the porringer was most likely a gift to celebrate the birth of a baby and is engraved with the capacity "1 1/2 GILLS", an antiquated unit of liquid measurement which is equivalent to 6 U.S. fluid ounces.

Introduced in 1878 and patented in 1880 (patent no. 11968), Chrysanthemum was the work of Charles T. Grosjean, one of the most influential silversmiths in Tiffany's history. Grosjean’s designs are among the most enduring of the Tiffany patterns and include Chrysanthemum, Lap-over-Edge, and English King. Chrysanthemum, however, found particular favor with Victorian socialites and new brides, despite the fact that it was one of the most expensive to create. The pattern was carried over to many forms of hollowware as well, which also enjoyed tremendous popularity. Chrysanthemum is still considered the top pattern Tiffany & Co. ever produced, and these opulent tazze exude the style and sophistication the pattern represents.

This porringer bears full Tiffany & Co. marks with the date initial "T" for Charles L. Tiffany, dating this piece between 1891-1902.
