THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION - PHILADELPHIA 1876

Tiffany & Co. - New York - 1876

Of rich silver plate, Tiffany & Co. present a very rare collection, which, together with their gold and diamond jewelry, is worth half a million of dollars. One small case of gold jewelry, is, alone, worth more than half that sum. Many of their pieces are in repousse work, from designs of their own, and of exceedingly rich and delicate ornamentation.

One dessert service, in Syrian style, is valued at $10,000. They have made nearly 300 prize cups, and a large number of presentation swords. One for Gen. Grant, exhibited at the New York Sanitary Fair, added $50,000 to the treasury. They have one diamond feather, purchased at the sale of the jewels of the mad Duke of Brunswick—an exquisite ornament, worth $30,000.

The firm was established in 1840, under the name of Tiffany, Young & Ellis. They now employ 1000 men, and do all their own work, from the first design to the last polish.

A. J. G. Hodenpyl, of Hodenpyl & Sons, who was a juror at the Paris Exposition of last Summer, is the recipient of a beautiful silver loving cup, presented to him by Tiffany & Co., last week. The cup, which was made by the donors, comes as a memento of their esteem and as a token in recognition of Mr. Hodenpyl's successful work at the Exposition. It is of sterling silver, eight and one half inches high by six inches, in diameter, weighs 45 ounces and has' a capacity of five pints. At the front between two of the three handles, appears Mr. Hodenpyl’s monogram, “A. J. G. H.,” surrounded by a belt containing the motto, “Cum grato animo fpro optime factis.'” The cup has been universally admired by the many friends to whom Mr. Hodenpyl has shown it and is one of the most cherished testimonials in Mr. Hodenpyl’s possession.

Image

The $1,000 Belmont Stakes trophy for 1908, offered by August Belmont and won by James R. Keene’s horse "Colin" on the Belmont race track, Saturday May 30. The prize for this year was a humidor incased in silver and gold, by Tiffany & Co. The illustration shows a front view of the trophy. The decorative scheme is in the style of Louis XVI. The humidor is mounted on four short standards. On the four corners at the top of the trophy are four horseshoes. Massive handles embellish the sides. On the front of the trophy is this inscription in relief in solid gold letters and numerals; "The Belmont Stakes, 1908. Won by ." The case of the humidor is surmounted by a superbly modeled representation of "Rockland," the famous race horse. The trophy is 15⅞ inches in length, 11 inches wide and 9¼ inches high, without measuring the height of the horse.
