Pattern Spotlight: Audubon, Tiffany & Co.

This summer afternoon dessert photo was shot by Paul Costello for Town and Country; Tiffany & Co. Audubon dessert service and Audubon and Faneuil flatware patterns.
Dessert plate, Audubon.

Flatware, Audubon.

Both patterns were created by Tiffany in 1871 to commemorate Commodore Matthew Perry's arrival in "The Land of the Rising Sun" and subsequent trade treaty with Japan. Audubon remains the best selling of Tiffany's flatware patterns.

I have always coveted Audubon. One day I shall have a service for 12. Until then, I shall dine with it in my mind.

A good friend gave us an Audubon cake knife and server when we got married; you'd be surprised how often I feel the need to use it.
