Edward C. Moore (1827-1891) was the creative leader of Tiffany & Co. during the late 19th century. A silversmith, designer, and collector, Moore sought out objects from around the world, which he then used as inspiration for Tiffany's silver designs. This illustrated book is the first study of Moore's life, collection, and influence, presenting more than 170 examples from his vast collection, which ranges from Greek and Roman glass to Spanish vases, Japanese textiles, and Islamic tiles. These works are juxtaposed with 67 silver objects created by Tiffany's designers and artisans who were inspired by Moore's acquisitions, including the world-famous Bryant Vase, which draws upon Greek examples, and a chocolate pot that incorporates novel techniques from Japanese ceramics, lacquerware, and metalwork. Essays incorporate new research from the Tiffany & Co. archives that provides an intimate look at the design process.
