Another Testimonial to Helen Gould.—Tiffany & Co. have had on exhibition in their window on Union Square the past few days a beautiful illuminated set of resolutions presented to Miss Helen Miller Gould by the employees of the Emergency Corps engaged in the excavation of the ruins of the Windsor Hotel. The resolutions are tastefully mounted in a gilt frame, the sole gold effect of which brings out the richness of the illuminated work.

Tiffany & Co. have offered to place an electric clock in the 22d Regiment Armory on Columbus Ave. The clock will be on a level with the elevated trains. It will be illuminated at night, and will be visible from within as well as without the armory.

Tiffany 25-Year Club Meets, Plans Program for Coming Year

Plans for the 1950-1951 year of the Twenty-Five Year Club of Tiffany & Co., New York, were formulated when the newly elected officers recently met in the boardroom of the company at 5th Ave. and 57th St., New York. They are James J. Finnerty, president; Raymond H. Wilcox, vice-president; John J. Walsh, secretary; Herbert H. Orel, treasurer; Herman H. Ellers, Jr., auditor; and Irving D. Woodin, John J. Chester, Roy W. Patterson, directors.

The club was formed by the employees in 1948 for the purpose, as stated in its constitution, ". . . of giving becoming expression of the pride which its members take from their association for 25 years, or more, in the service of Tiffany & Co." At the present time there are 155 active members, a majority of whom have been with the firm close to 40 years. In addition, there are 31 honorary members who are on the retired list.

The feature event of the past two years has been an annual dinner held at the Midston House in New York City. These affairs are planned for members only and the festivities include a memorable welcome to new members and the presentation of gold emblematic lapel buttons or brooches.

At the dinner held on last Washington's Birthday eve, the outgoing president, Roy W. Patterson, was the recipient of a leather-bound, handsomely decorated Testimonial of Esteem and Appreciation signed by all the members of the club. The presentation climaxed with an appropriate address by then vice-president, Mr. Finnerty who acted as toastmaster.

Six officers of Tiffany & Co. have been members from the beginning. They are Louis B. de Moore, president; S. Hinman Bird, Robert S. Douglas, James B. Dickey, and Arthur L. Barney, vice-presidents; and Ellsworth P. Hyde, assistant controller. At the club's annual meeting in 1949 Mr. Moore was elected by acclamation to the office of Honorary President for life.

The Goelet Cups for 1895

The Goelet prize cups were, this year as usual, supplied by Tiffany & Co. The prizes are the costliest that Mr. Goelet has ever offered, and although they will probably go on record as the $1,000 and $500 Goelet cups, the generous donor paid considerably more this year to secure two of the choicest examples of the silversmith’s art. The former is one of Tiffany & Co.’s famous Columbian Exposition pieces, a bacchanalian tankard weighing nearly 160 ounces. In general form it was suggested by the style of the carved wooden tankards made early in the last century. This silver tankard, however, merely suggests the form of the earlier ones, for the decorations, which reveal a blending of rococco work and bacchanalian characters, bear the stamp of originality. Under the lips of the tankard Satyr is represented, with an expression of thirst, surrounded by a rich growth of luxurious grapes and leaves, forming a broad border-like decoration around the top.

Around the lower part of the tankard a procession of babinos is seen, some riding on rams, and others walking and producing sounds with pipes, flutes and various instruments of the period, while others in this merry band have developed into fauns, and are sporting in gymnastic exercises as they join in the feast of wine and song. To give an appropriate support to the sentiment expressed in this frieze, the base of the cup is decorated with the proverbial ram’s head, smothered in lavish decoration of the wine producing fruit, while the ram’s hoofs are introduced as feet to the piece. The handle is of rococco character and very graceful. The tankard has a capacity of seven quarts, and it stands two feet high, measuring six-and-a-half inches in diameter at the bottom from which it tapers off to the top.

The other prize is a massive silver punch bowl of the famous Tiffany Indian chrysanthemum pattern. It weighs 200 ounces, stands 11 inches high, and has a capacity of 16 quarts. The decorative work upon this bowl, while not so lavish as upon the tankard, is still of a very superior order. The Indian chrysanthemum buds, leaves and flowers are not merely chased, but were first cast and then all the minute details of the beautiful flower brought out by repousse work and then applied to the bowl. The bas-relief work and chasing are examples of the most advanced work. Both trophies are, in many respects, among the most beautiful and costly that will be raced for during the season.

Death of James D. Rockwell

James D. Rockwell, who for more than 30 years had charge of the safe deposit department of Tiffany & Co, New York, died at Fair Haven, N. J, last Wednesday. The body was brought to his home, 24 S. Elliott PI, Brooklyn, where the funeral took place. The Rev. Dr. R. R. Meredith, pastor of the Tompkins Avenue Congregational Church, of which Mr. Rockwell was a member, conducted the service. The burial was in Greenwood Cemetery.

Mr. Rockwell was born in New York city 68 years ago. As a young man he was a silversmith’s apprentice, and was with the firm of Wood & Hughes for many years. In 1867 he became connected with Tiffany & Co, and remained with them until the time of his death. He had been in Fair Haven, where he went for his health, since July 8. A widow and five children survive him. The Fulton Council of the Royal Arcanum was the only society with which he was connected.

The deceased was a genial, whole souled man. His many years’ connection with Tiffany & Co.’s safe deposit vaults brought him in touch with many of the firm’s oldest patrons and with well known families.
