Bejewelled by Tiffany, 1837-1987

£30.00

Product description

Tiffany & Co, since its foundation in 1837, has been a uniquely American brand, famous for its glamour, creative design and fine craftsmanship. Starting modestly as a 'Fancy Goods' store on Broadway, Tiffany rose quickly to international fame, its jewellery winning the medals and stunning the worlds at the great international exhibitions of the nineteenth century.
This sumptuous book is edited by Clare Phillips, Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, with essays by a team of leading historians of American jewellery. Their essays chart the early years of the modest New York store, the transformation of the firm under Louis Comfort Tiffany into a world leader, and the re-establishment of Tiffany as a great, international company following the Second World War.
Full catalogue entries, all beautifully illustrated and many with specially commissioned photography, cover around two hundred pieces of jewellery dating from the 1850s to the 1980s.
