Charles Lewis Tiffany (February 15, 1812 – February 18, 1902) founded Tiffany & Co. in New York City in 1837. A leader in the American jewelry trade in the nineteenth century, he was known for his jewelry expertise, created the country's first retail catalog, and, in 1851, he introduced the English standard of sterling silver.

Tiffany is close to my heart for not only did his fahter design a stainglass window for the 2nd Presbyterian Church in my home town of Chicago but his son Louis Comfor designed the Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, Ct. just a stone's throw from here where I am typing. To stand before his windows with the setting sun streaming through can be equated to a spiritual experience. The beauty of it all.

Let us not forget about the "Tiffany girls", those who worked on the pieces hands-on, some of them designing and some actually fabricating the objects, without signing their handiwork! As far as I can see, only the name of one female designer is mentioned in the article.
