Description: Paulding Farnham (1859-1927), one of America's most talented jewelry designers, rose to fame in the final years of the 19th century, winning gold medal after gold medal at the era's great world's fairs. This stunning book is the first devoted to Farnham and his too-brief career, spent entirely at Tiffany & Co., where his dazzling, highly original jewels and silverware brought the firm -- and America as well -- worldwide recognition.

Tiffany design director John Loring, author also of Abrams' Tiffany Jewels and Tiffany's 20th Century, here revives the reputation of this long-neglected genius. Reproduced here are watercolor-and-ink drawings from Farnham's sketchbooks, period photographs of his creations, and new, specially commissioned photographs of Farnham's exquisite jewels, including the 24 gold-and-enamel orchid brooches that were the sensation of the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition. Sumptuous and surprising, this volume will bring Farnham's work, until now solely known to connoisseurs, scholars, and savvy collectors, to a wider audience.
