In 1841 a further partner joined the company and it subsequently became Tiffany, Young and Ellis. Silver items began to appear in the “Blue Book” catalogue that first appeared in 1845 and continues to be produced to this day. Moving to larger premises in 1847, the company began to retail considerably more silver and jewellery and it was at this time that American silver came into it’s own with New York silversmiths producing items of distinction and adopting the English sterling standard of .925 in 1851.
Wanting more control over the creation of silverware, the company contracted with the firm of John C Moore, one of America’s finest designing silversmiths. This relationship between the Tiffany and Moore families was to last until 1955, seeing the company produce outstanding pieces, winning major awards at international expositions and creating a highly successful company from sound business judgement and the production of goods of exceptional quality.
