Hi,
The very best way would be to send them a link to the GMB site via email or send them pics direct I am sure they would be most helpful.
Email address is info(AT)tiffanyfakes.com [change (AT) to @ to make the email address work]


I'll keep my fingers crossed that it is genuine.
Regards Mike

Thanks Mike! That is an excellent idea. I will do so, once I've heard from the Morse Museum curator - I have an email request in to them as well.

Okay, here's the latest - I talked with Philip Chasen (chasenantiques.com) and he will review photos and determine if he can authenticate and appraise this. He will send me something in writing in a few days.

I will let you all know how this shakes out!

Many thanks for all the input, and please cross your fingers!

Kelli

Good luck...even if it's a fake, it's a lovely piece of glass.  I do love a big lump.  :thup:

And if it's not the real deal, I imagine I wouldn't mind having it around here to look at. :)

Woohoo!

Kelli

Below you will find a copy of your appraisal.  I'll put a hard copy in the mail today.

Best.

APPRAISAL


Kelli Rooney
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx, NM 87120


Tiffany Studios loving cup, American, circa 1910.

The form of the loving cup is rare and unusual with three body sections, three handles and nine applied tendrils. The handles extend from the body to the knop below. Three tendrils are applied to the body between each pair of handles, repeating three times. The entire surface has been completed in a gold iridescent finish. The signature is engraved on the underside of the foot “L.C.T.”. The loving cup measures 12" tall x 6" diameter. One of the handles has been broken off and professionally re-joined to the body. The rest of the loving cup is in good condition.

I'm leaving off the value in this forum, but will say that itsvalue if perfect is less than we thought it would be, but value "as is" is MORE than we thought it would be. All in all we're tickled pink!

WoohooHOO!

So, what are you going to do with it? Keep it and enjoy it for a while, then sell it so you can do something nice/essential later?

We're going to keep it for awhile. I think it will be hard to sell with the damage (everyone on "that" website wants everything to be perfect, for a nickel).  I think we'll just enjoy it for awhile, unless someone comes out of the woodwork and makes an offer on it. I kinda like it, lol.
