1. Here's one. About a year ago I bought an old Tiffany storage chest.
It's not just a little silverware chest, but one that used to hold a big sterling tea service and is so big I use it as a coffee table. I estimate it's from about 1910 - 1920. It's got a dark, fumed finish like the Stickleys used during the Arts & Crafts period, but no indicator of cabinet maker. It's lined in mauve velvet and has a tray for smaller pieces and is stamped with Tiffany's name and address on the inside. I've been trying to figure out how much it's worth, but no luck. One antique seller's site has a somewhat similar chest WITH the silver in it, for $188,000. One thing's for certain - I sure wish mine came with the tea set. LOL.
