Gallery Label: 
The "Queen Anne" pattern was introduced by Tiffany in 1875-1876, and has an unknown designer. Because the design is not original it does not have a patent. It was inactive by 1904, and reactivated in 1907. In 1910 it was modified and reintroduced as the "Faneuil" pattern and is still active today.
