Lot Essay

The Indian Spoon series was designed by Charles Grosjean in 1885 and a complete service was ordered by William Randolph Hearst in 1927. The figural flatware was inspired by George Catlin's Illustrations of North American Indians and objects in the National Museum, Washington, D.C. The series is depicted in William P. Hood, Jr., Tiffany Silver Flatware 1845-1905: When Dining Was an Art, 1999, illus. pp. 259-61.
