Tiffany & Co
Charles Lewis Tiffany and John Young founded Tiffany & Co. in New York in 1837. Tiffany's tireless search for one of a kind objects charmed and fascinated the wealthy of New York from the outset. Joined by his son Louis Comfort Tiffany, Tiffany & Co. were to become America's pre-eminent house of design and the world's premier jeweller at the end of the Nineteenth Century. By 1867 Tiffany & Co. were recognised globally, winning the highly coveted Award of Merit at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1867. This was the first time an American company had been recognized by a European jury.
