Loring, John.
Tiffany Flora / Tiffany Fauna.

New York Harry N. Abrams: 2003.

A colorful, sumptuous survey of the best and most dramatic in Tiffany jewelry in two volumes, one focusing on animals, the other on flowers. "a striking visual survey of the unparalleled craftsmanship of Tiffany & Co. The effect is like peering into an ark of fantastic, bejeweled creatures-winged dragons with fiery eyes clutching beautiful gems a golden parrot in a jaunty diamond cap and blue enameled pantaloons an extravagant wreath of diamond and platinum leaves and flowers a blushingly suggestive enameled orchid and a Tiffany lamp in blues and greens evoking an illuminated wisteria." The pieces illustrated and described range from the 19th century to the present day. A must-have set for the Tiffany & Co. enthusiast.

Hardcover. 2 vols. 7.5"x8.5", 128 + 128 pages, color and b/w illustrations, dj. New. Slipcased. Published at $100.00.
