TIFFANY & CO INC. HISTORY

The firm was founded by Charles L. Tiffany in 1837 with John B. Young under the name Tiffany & Young.
In 1851 John C. Moore & Son entered into a special business relationship with Tiffany.
In 1868 the silverware factory of Moore became part of organisation with Edward C. Moore becoming one of the directors.
Throughout the remaining years of the 19th century, Tiffany’s won wide acclaim for the nature of its product and the wealth of its clientele.
Tiffany and Co. moved to its current location on New York 5th Ave. in 1940. The new building was immensely beautiful and was designed in the art deco style. Above the door is a statue of Atlas bearing the weight of the world. Instead of a globe being held above his head, he holds a clock. The architects of the building wanted to create an ominous affect that reminded Tiffany & Co.’s visitors of the rarity and preciousness of the treasures carried by the store. For that reason, all of the buildings doors were made to look like the doors of industrial bank vaults.
Today, Tiffany & Co. remains a leading maker of jewelry, china, crystal, silver, and glassware. Tiffany’s sterling pieces are some of the purest to be found in the world.
