Chrysanthemum by Tiffany
ASPARAGUS TONGS monogrammed "EMLL"
Sterling Silver Asparagus Tongs Chrysanthemum by Tiffany & Co. patented 1880, engraved with a script monogram "EMLL". Tiffany's luxurious Chrysanthemum silver was designed in 1880. With its flowing curves, swirling vegetation, meandering tendrils, and exotic blossoming plants, Chrysanthemum is characteristic of 'The Tiffany Style' or 'Art Nouveau' as that style is more commonly known. The rich and graceful flowering motifs of Chrysanthemum were undoubtedly influenced by Louis Comfort Tiffany. They make Chrysanthemum the most sumptuous of American silver patterns.
