I have a small bowl designed with grapes and leaves. After reading your forum questions I now understand most of the markings on the bottom of the bowl. I still have a question about the T underneath the 925-1000 stamp.

Any help and information is greatly appreciated.
Thank You Siri

Tiffany used the initial of the current president of the company to help date the item. It is possible that the T on your bowk might stand for Charles L. Tiffany who was president during 1891 through 1902.

Due to technical problems, I have been unable to comment on this post until now, for which I apologize. Fred is correct. The "T" indicates manufacture 1891-1902, during which time Charles L. Tiffany was president (see the book Tiffany Silver by Carpenter and Carpenter [New York: Dodd, Mead, 1978], p. 256).
