  • Description
    An impressive and decorative sterling silver tureen by the outstanding American maker Tiffany & Co. Designed beautifully in a blunt hand hammered and waved handles, standing on base, special handwork in Japanesque style, which was particularly fashionable at the time of its making in 1879. Measuring approximately 13 1/2 inches from handle to handle and 8 1/2 inches tall. Weighing 44.1 troy ounces. Bearing hallmarks as shown in images.

    The legendary Tiffany brand was founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in Connecticut as a "stationery and fancy goods emporium," with the help of Charles Tiffany's father who financed the store for only $1,000 with profits from a cotton mill. Tiffany & Co. soon became a highly regarded brand for jewelry, gemstones, and silver. In 1845, Tiffany was a pioneer when it launched the Blue Book, which at the time was the first mail-order catalog to be distributed in the US. In 1878, Tiffany won the gold medal for jewelry and a grand prize for silverware at the Paris World Fair Exposition. The luxury brand’s enduring legacy remains vibrant to this day.
