Hi! Love this forum! Question for Mr. Hood please. In your Tiffany silver Flatware 1845-1905 book (I assume it was done by you), you make reference on page 51 & show a picture (figure 50) of a knife in the Canova pattern. There are pictures of a spoon & fork a well. Can you give me more info on this unusual pattern and possibly tell me

I would be rems if I failed to tell you how much I love your book as well, NOT kidding! Thank you in advance or your time, I am sure you are busy but hopefully you can reply to this message. Jersey

Thanks for your kind comments about the book Tiffany Silver Flatware. The Canova pieces in the book are from a dessert set that was illustrated and discussed in detail in an article titled "Exceptional Nineteenth Century British Flatware, Including a Rare Canova Pattern Dessert Set," which appeared in Silver Magazine, March/April 2004, pp. 18-27. It would be inappropriate for me to discuss sale of such a set here in the forums, but for more information you can contact me privately at
