For sale is a rare and hard to find desk set item made by Tiffany Studios of New York, New York. The item is a paper clip and is done in the "Abalone" desk set pattern in Tiffany Studios fancy goods line. The patina on the metal is the very popular real gold patina with poly chrome highlights. The paper clip measures 2 5/16" deep by 2 3/8" outside hinge balls measurement. The flat metal bottom measures 1 15/16". It stands 1 1/8" tall.

The paper clip has a slight rectangular shape and is not quite square. It has a raised relief Art Nouveau pattern that consists of grapes and leaves with real Abalone shell discs being used to represent the grapes. There are 8 of these Abalone set on the top side of the paper clip. The is a factory drill hole for hanging on a nail on the bottom metal base. This is a very hard to find desk set item in the Abalone pattern when it has the poly chrome finish which consist of red and green highlights. It is considered by the Abalone desk set collectors to be the best finish to collect in this Tiffany Studios desk set fancy goods line. When found they are usually with a large set up for auction. Rarely do you get the chance to buy just the paper clip.

This paper clip is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, or dings to any of the metal. There is typical age wear to the red and green poly chrome. The hinge on the clip works wonderful and is quite firm. It still retains both original balls on each side of the spring. This paper clip still retains all of its original Abalone discs. There is typical age wear to the real gold patina. The paper clip is properly signed on the bottom with the "Tiffany Stvdios New York" impressed mark along with the pattern number "1165" impressed just under it. The "v" in Studios denotes this as an earlier mark.

Tiffany started using a 3 digit numbering system after 1902. Since this has a 4 digit number this paper clip was made circa 1902-1905. Those of you who are looking for an very nice example of this paper clip in the Abalone pattern with gold patina and poly chrome highlights will be delighted with their purchase.
