About this artwork

The New York firm Tiffany and Company was founded in the mid-19th century and quickly became world renowned. This teakettle was created for the 1878 Exposition Universelle in Paris and was most likely designed by Edward C. Moore (American, 1827–1891). Twelve years later, the firm produced the accompanying stand. The kettle and stand harmoniously blend the designs of the Aesthetic and Arts and Crafts movements, both of which were influenced by non-Western design. These works are quintessential representations of international taste during the late 19th century.
