Handle Image of Pattern Audubon by Tiffany

Audubon was designed in 1871 during a most innovative period in the history of Tiffany silver, and is still one of the most popular of all Tiffany patterns.
Audubon was the first Tiffany pattern to introduce silver decorated in the Japanese Revival style. The flowing designs of branches and twigs with leaves, buds, flowers and exotic birds were entirely different from anything in American silver at that time.
The Audubon pattern was a direct result of the interest in exotic cultures which became so widespread in the late nineteenth century. This interest led directly into the Art Nouveau movement whose world leader was Louis Comfort Tiffany, son of Tiffany's founder.
Each piece of Audubon is decorated with intricate designs adapted from nineteenth century Japanese bird paintings, with eight species represented. The back of each piece has complimentary designs derived from Japanese flowers.
