Excellent vintage condition, Cleaned and lightly polished to a bright, shiny silver; but there is some surface patina (mainly light scratches), Original sleeve and box in very good vintage condition with minor cosmetic wear.

Practical and thoughtful present with an Asian flair. Makes a nice gift for both men and women. Great for adding a touch of class to sushi, many other Asian dishes, or for adding to your Tiffany & Co. and/or chopsticks collection. Features a clean and streamlined design for individuals that prefer a modern aesthetic. The fine craftsmanship is evidenced by its unique and clever design that starts out as a square shape at the top end, then tapers and transform slowly (almost invisibly ) into a rounded bottom edge, making the chopsticks easier to maneuver in your hands, but still comfortable for handling food and eating your meal. It glistens in your hands and feels quite substantial with 45 g of sterling silver total for the pair, each over 9" L. Yet, the chopsticks are still light enough to be ergonomic, not much heavier than a standard fork, spoon, knife, or other silverware.
Adding a monogram would add an extra special touch. Cleaned and lightly polished, but there are some surface patina (mainly light scratches) remaining. This patina can remain or the chopsticks can be machined polished at jeweler. There is no monogram (only Tiffany hallmark on side of each chopstick), so you may also monogram at your local jewelers.
It is possible these may have been sold in the ‘90s or earlier. They may have been part of special collections of chopsticks that were produced in extremely limited numbers and retailed in the California and Hawaii markets, selling for $750 or more. These same collections today would probably cost in the upwards of $1200.
Ready to give as an heirloom gift or acquire for your collection. Comes as a pair with original Tiffany felt blue sleeve and box.
A gift that will keep its value and can be passed down as an heirloom piece!

THE TIFFANY STORY
Pioneers of Design
Since its founding, Tiffany has been at the forefront of the world’s greatest design movements. Its Japanesque silver won Tiffany the highest honors at the 1878 Paris World Exposition and at the turn of the twentieth century, Louis Comfort Tiffany emerged as an Art Nouveau leader. From glamorous, geometric Art Deco pieces and bold cocktail-style creations to the nature-inspired works of Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti, Tiffany has broken new ground time and again with exceptional designs that remain relevant today.
A Celebrated Following
Since the early twentieth century, the world has been enchanted with Tiffany glamour. In the 1961 Hollywood classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn® personified Tiffany style. First ladies, tastemakers and renowned photographers have also turned to Tiffany jewelry as the ultimate fashion accessory. Today, Tiffany’s exquisite designs continue to exude sophistication and elegance in magazines, in films and on the red carpet, adorning luminaries of popular culture like Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway and countless others.
Tiffany has always been the leader in exploring new materials and set the standard of purity for sterling silver and platinum in the U.S.
Tiffany’s most well-known and celebrated creations . . . legendary in its design and its provenance . . . transcends time.
