Magnificent Tiffany silver
This elegant volume is the first comprehensive look at the superbly crafted silver created by Tiffany & Co. over the course of its 150-year history: the prize-winning 1,250-piece Mackay table service that remains the single greatest silver service ever produced, the Bryant Vase that became the first object of American silver in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's permanent collection, and myriad presentation pieces, vases, tea and coffee services, commemorative cups, and fabulous sporting trophies ranging from the Belmont Cup to the Super Bowl trophy are among the masterpieces featured.Tiffany & Co. design director John Loring highlights the careers of Tiffany's key silver designers, from Edward C. Moore to Elsa Peretti, in a wonderfully anecdotal text brimming with historical detail of society, business, and sports in America. Three hundred extraordinary color photographs bring into focus the beauty, originality, and fine workmanship of American silver at its best.
