A most unique addition to a collection of sterling silver perfume bottles. The nature theme is accomplished using a main clamshell bottle and the accompanying calla lily funnel. The dabber/stopper completes this fabulous three-piece set. Features a finely detailed art nouveau design. Besides the fine craftsmanship, the shape of this perfume bottle appears to be exactly the same as seen in other .925 sterling silver vintage Tiffany & Co. shell bottles. The dabber/stopper also appears to be the same as the dabbers/stopper used in those bottles, included the shape and the threaded end cap. You will notice that other sterling shell perfume bottles have differences in shape, such as some originating in Mexico that have a more rounded and puffy overall appearance. The finer details of the curved, sweeping lines from the neck to the ends are the same with groupings of thin lines separated by deeper and slightly darker grooves down the side of the bottle. You will also notice that many other sterling shell perfume bottles attach to the end cap with the round portion of the shell, while only a few including Tiffany & Co. inverts the shell and places the other side near the end cap. Some of the other end caps also have many style variations. The sterling silver calla lily funnel is very rare, as found no other example with either Tiffany & Co. or even other silver shell perfume bottles. However, it is part of the set, because both the main perfume bottle and the funnel carry the same hallmark (see photos). The ".925" hallmark on the bottle is also in the same area as found on Tiffany & Co. shell bottles and also starts with the ".925" mark on top the other mark. The funnel fits seamlessly into the bottle. The shape of the funnel matches the shape of the perfume bottle perfectly and the combination of both together is an even more beautiful work of art. This is further evidence of the skill and fine craftmanship of these pieces. The addition of the calla lily funnel truly makes this an extremely rare and valuable collectible! This piece is estimated to be from around the mid-twentieth century, probably the 1960s. Ready to give as an heirloom gift or acquire for your collection. Comes with the main perfume bottle, the dabber/stopper, and the calla lily funnel. A gift that will keep its value and can be passed down as an heirloom piece! Extremely Rare!

MORE HISTORY OF TIFFANY & CO. Tiffany & Co. is one of the most prominent purveyors of luxury goods in the United States, and has long been an important arbiter of style in the design of diamond engagement rings. A young Franklin Delano Roosevelt proposed to his future wife, Eleanor, with a Tiffany ring in 1904. Vanderbilts, Whitneys, Astors and members of the Russian imperial family all wore Tiffany & Co. jewels. And Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis preferred Tiffany china for state dinners at the White House. Although synonymous with luxury today, the firm started out rather modestly. Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young founded it in Connecticut as a stationery and fancy goods emporium in 1837, at a time when European imports still dominated the nascent American luxury market. In 1853, Charles Tiffany-who in 1845 had launched the company's famed catalog, the Blue Book, and with it, the firm's signature robin's-egg blue, which he chose for the cover-shifted the focus to fine jewelry. In 1868, Tiffany & Co. gained international recognition when it became the first U.S. firm to win an award for excellence in silverware at the Exposition Universelle in Paris. From then on, it belonged to the pantheon of American luxury brands. At the start of the Gilded Age, in 1870, Tiffany & Co. opened its flagship store, described as a "palace of jewels" by the New York Times, at 15 Union Square West in Manhattan. Throughout this period, its designs for silver tableware, ceremonial silver, flatware and jewelry were highly sought-after indicators of status and taste. They also won the firm numerous accolades, including the grand prize for silverware at the Paris Exposition of 1878. Among the firm's glittering creations from this time are masterworks of Art Nouveau jewelry, such as this delicate aquamarine necklace and this lavish plique-à-jour peridot and gold necklace, both circa 1900. When Charles Lewis Tiffany died, in 1902, his son Louis Comfort Tiffany became the firm's design director. Under his leadership, the Tiffany silver studio was a de facto design school for apprentice silversmiths, who worked alongside head artisan Edward C. Moore. The firm produced distinctive objects inspired by Japanese art and design, North American plants and flowers, and Native American patterns and crafts, adding aesthetic diversity to Tiffany & Co.'s distinguished repertoire. Tiffany is also closely associated with diamonds, even lending its name to one particularly rare and exceptional yellow stone. The firm bought the Tiffany diamond in its raw state from the Kimberley mines of South Africa in 1878. Cut to create a 128.54-carat gem with an unprecedented 82 facets, it is one of the most spectacular examples of a yellow diamond in the world. In a broader sense, Tiffany & Co. helped put diamonds on the map in 1886 by introducing the American marketplace to the solitaire diamond design, which is still among the most popular engagement-ring styles. The trademark Tiffany® Setting raises the stone above the band on six prongs, allowing its facets to catch the light. A lovely recent example is this circa-2000 platinum engagement ring. Displaying a different design and aesthetic (but equally chic) is this exquisite diamond and ruby ring from the 1930s. Tiffany & Co.'s Silver Studio was the first American school of design. This groundbreaking establishment became America's premier silversmith and purveyor of jewels and timepieces by 1870. The accelerated expansion of wealth in America founded a demand for silver objects, which was increased through the abrupt discovery of large silver deposits in the west. Tiffany & Co.'s silver legacy is consistent of candlesticks, tea sets, trays, bowls, vases, plates, pitchers as well as numerous acclaimed patterns.
