Description
The antique silver flatware of Tiffany & Co., New York City, is highly sought-after, but the collector is frustrated by the lack of available information on and pictures of patterns and pieces (Tiffany's early catalogues 'Blue Books' did not always list what pieces were made in each pattern and never had illustrations). This definitive book relates the history of the silver flatware made by others and retailed by Tiffany 1845-c.1876 as well as that designed and made in-house 1869-1905. The story is woven into the broader fabric of the history of flatware in general and that of dining and food. The development and proliferation of many different flatware pieces in America are analysed and compared with the same in England, France and Germany. Based on research in the Tiffany Archives and elsewhere, this volume discusses and illustrates twenty-three Tiffany-made full-line patterns (plus variations) numerous not-full-line patterns and ten custom patterns.
