About

Edwardian Tiffany & Co sterling silver 13-piece vanity set. This Edwardian sterling silver gentleman's dresser set was made by Tiffany & Company in the early part of the 20th century. The pieces have been finished in an intricate pattern made up of a series of foliate scrolls bordered by stylized bellflowers. The items bear cartouches which have been beautifully monogrammed in script. The dresser set is comprised of 13 pieces and includes a glove stretcher, button hook, shoe horn, hinged and perforated soap case, hairbrush, comb, nail file, handled nail buffer, cuticle tool, garment brushes, hat brush, and a whisk broom. It should be noted that the button hook, nail file and cuticle tool have hollow sterling handles which have been fitted with steel implements. The pieces are all fully hallmarked for Tiffany and have variations of the words "Tiffany & Co Makers - Sterling Silver" along with the letter "M" designating Tiffany director John C Moore II, who served from 1907 - 1947. The measurements and numbers of the items are as follows: The 64g comb is 8" in length, bearing number 8278G. The 61g shoe horn is 6.5" in length, bearing number 15088G. The 114g soap case is 4" x 3", bearing number 17191A. The 71g glove stretcher is 7.5" in length, bearing number 8621G. The 60g handled nail buffer is 5.5" in length, bearing number 17998G. The 163g hair brush is 9" in length, bearing number 6688G. The 166g rectangular garment brush is 7" in length, bearing number 3342G. The 124g rectangular garment brush is 6" in length, bearing number 6877. The 159g whisk is 10.5" in length, bearing number 6414. The 93g hat brush is 6.25" in length, bearing number 7579G. The 33g nail file is 6.75" in length, bearing number 18108G. The 30g button hook is 6.25" in length, bearing number 10910G. The 30g cuticle tool is 5.25" in length, bearing number 18110G. The set has been well cared for and is in good antique condition showing signs of age commensurate with use including minor dents and scratches. The teeth of the comb are all present and the chamois surface of the nail buffer is intact with no tears. The decoration and hallmarks have not been overly rubbed and remain largely clear and distinct. This handsome gentleman's dresser set displays beautifully and would be a fine addition to a collection of antique sterling silver.

About the Maker

Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany & Co. is one of the most prominent purveyors of luxury goods in the United States, and has long been an important arbiter of style in the design of diamond engagement rings. A young Franklin Delano Roosevelt proposed to his future wife, Eleanor, with a Tiffany ring in 1904. Vanderbilts, Whitneys, Astors and members of the Russian imperial family all wore Tiffany & Co. jewels. And Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis preferred Tiffany china for state dinners at the White House.Although synonymous with luxury today, the firm started out rather modestly. Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young founded it in Connecticut as a “stationery and fancy goods emporium” in 1837, at a time when European imports still dominated the nascent American luxury market. In 1853, Charles Tiffany — who in 1845 had launched the company’s famed catalog, the Blue Book, and with it, the firm’s signature robin’s-egg blue, which he chose for the cover — shifted the focus to fine jewelry. In 1868, Tiffany & Co. gained international recognition when it became the first U.S. firm to win an award for excellence in silverware at the Exposition Universelle in Paris. From then on, it belonged to the pantheon of American luxury brands.At the start of the Gilded Age, in 1870, Tiffany & Co. opened its flagship store, described as a "palace of jewels" by the New York Times, at 15 Union Square West in Manhattan. Throughout this period, its designs for silver tableware, ceremonial silver, flatware and jewelry were highly sought-after indicators of status and taste. They also won the firm numerous accolades, including the grand prize for silverware at the Paris Exposition of 1878. Among the firm’s glittering creations from this time are masterworks of Art Nouveau jewelry, such as this delicate aquamarine necklace and this lavish plique-à-jour peridot and gold necklace, both circa 1900.When Charles Lewis Tiffany died, in 1902, his son Louis Comfort Tiffany became the firm’s design director. Under his leadership, the Tiffany silver studio was a de facto design school for apprentice silversmiths, who worked alongside head artisan Edward C. Moore. The firm produced distinctive objects inspired by Japanese art and design, North American plants and flowers, and Native American patterns and crafts, adding aesthetic diversity to Tiffany & Co.’s distinguished repertoire.Tiffany is also closely associated with diamonds, even lending its name to one particularly rare and exceptional yellow stone. The firm bought the Tiffany diamond in its raw state from the Kimberley mines of South Africa in 1878. Cut to create a 128.54-carat gem with an unprecedented 82 facets, it is one of the most spectacular examples of a yellow diamond in the world. In a broader sense, Tiffany & Co. helped put diamonds on the map in 1886 by introducing the American marketplace to the solitaire diamond design, which is still among the most popular engagement-ring styles. The trademark Tiffany® Setting raises the stone above the band on six prongs, allowing its facets to catch the light. A lovely recent example is this circa-2000 platinum engagement ring. Displaying a different design and aesthetic (but equally chic) is this exquisite diamond and ruby ring from the 1930s.
