An old New York celebrity—for many years out of sight, has again appeared before the public under a new coat (of paint)—Atlas, who for so many years held time on his shoulders at 550 Broadway, when Tiffany &: Co. resided there, is now again on exhibition with a clock over his head in the central window of their building on Union Square. If he could only obtain a little of Lincoln’s surplus clothing he and the ex-president would be a match on the west side for Washington and Lafayette on the east. Decidedly Union Square is becoming the great art centre of New York.

The wonderful Tiffany collection of gems and precious stones exhibited at the World’s Fair, has been sold to the Field Columbian Museum, of Chicago. The price paid is said to be $100,000. This collection is regarded as one of the most important additions that has been made to the museum.

Those are the #150 small 'lazy tongs', an undated drawing of the larger #149 appears in Figure 249 on page 166 of Dr. Hood's [i]Tiffany Silver Flatware, 1845-1905 (2003), an excellent book, by the way, not just for those interested in Tiffany, but also American silver flatware in general. The book notes that the lazy tongs appear in a 'Spoonwork Book' dated 1882/83, and an undated 'Flatware Brochure' from 1878-1905, I also find them in the 1894 Tiffany Blue Book priced at $7.00 to $9.00. Depending on reference source, that capital serifed 'M' for Edward M. Moore appears on flatware from either 1869-91 or 1876-91 (won't even ponder on the old Blue Books showing that 'M" as in use 1862-91). My poor old eyes are having difficulty with the engraved design on the tongs, but what I can see does look like it might be typical of the 1880s or thereabouts.[/i]

A massive gold and crystal inkstand, made by Tiffany & Co., was presented Thursday night by the American Dramatists’ Club to the secretary, Chas. Barnard, in recognition of his services to the club since its foundation.
