Tiffany & Co. by E. Peretti Sterling Silver Candle Snuffer Mid-Century Modern

About the Item

Tiffany & Co. sterling silver candle snuffer, designed by the celebrated Elsa Peretti, in Mid-Century Modern style, with an elegant, geometric design. It measures 17'' in length by 2 1/8'' in height and bears hallmarks as shown. The legendary Tiffany brand was founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in Connecticut as a "stationery and fancy goods emporium," with the help of Charles Tiffany's father who financed the store for only $1,000 with profits from a cotton mill. Tiffany & Co. soon became a highly regarded brand for jewelry, gemstones, and silver. In 1845, Tiffany was a pioneer when it launched the Blue Book, which at the time was the first mail-order catalog to be distributed in the US. In 1878, Tiffany won the gold medal for jewelry and a grand prize for silverware at the Paris World Fair Exposition. The luxury brand’s enduring legacy remains vibrant to this day. Elsa Peretti (1940 – 2021), was an Italian designer and fashion model. Peretti quickly rose in the jewelry field, receiving the 1971 Coty Award for jewelry design, given in recognition of her “extension of jewelry into the realm of fashion sculpture.” In 1972 Bloomingdale's, one of New York's landmark department stores, opened a dedicated Peretti boutique. “In 1974, with the help of her best friend Halston, she brokered a deal with Tiffany’s that made her, arguably, the most successful jewelry designer—male or female—ever,” according to Vogue. By 1979, she was the firm's leading designer. Her broadly popular work became as much as 10% of Tiffany's business. Her influence on design remains vibrant to this day; many of her pieces are included in the collections of prestigious museums, such as the British Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
