This absolutely monumental sterling silver tea tray by the famed Tiffany & Co. was crafted in the firm's famed Chrysanthemum pattern. This opulent motif's signature flowers are masterfully chased along the tray's border. Furthermore, the body of the tray has been etched with the blooms, a decorative addition that is rarely seen on Tiffany silver creations. Measuring 2 1/2 feet wide, the monumental tea tray is among the finest pieces of Tiffany Chrysanthemum ever made.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the rise in popularity of the afternoon tea party and coffee hour in America made formal trays such as this increasingly sought after. A set crafted by the greatest American silversmiths of the age, Tiffany & Co., would have been a significant status symbol among the upper classes, particularly one in the highly coveted Chrysanthemum pattern.

The pattern was first conceived in 1880 by the renowned Tiffany silversmith Charles T. Grosjean, one of the most influential designers 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 found particular favor with Victorian socialites and new brides, and to this day it is regarded as the top pattern Tiffany & Co. ever produced. This tray is a stunning example of the luxury silver pieces that Tiffany created in this opulent motif.

A special dedication at the center of the tray reads: John Nicholas Brown / from his mother on his twenty first birthday / December 17th, 1882. John Nicholas Brown (1861-1900) was the son of John Carter Brown II (1797–1874), a renowned book collector. John Nicholas donated his father's collection to Brown University following his death, where it formed the basis of the John Carter Brown Library.
