TIFFANY & CO ANNOUNCES LATEST COLLABORATION WITH MITCHELL & NESS NOSTALGIA CO DESIGNING AN EXCLUSIVE FOOTBALL JERSEY.
Tiffany & Co. announces its latest creative collaboration: a collaboration with Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. The house has designed an exclusive football jersey to honor its heritage of designing and handcrafting iconic sports trophies, as well as to celebrate Super Bowl LVII, which takes place on Sunday, February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
Meticulous craftsmanship. Classic and contemporary designs. Tiffany & Co. has spent 160 years of its nearly two-century history designing and handcrafting some of the world’s most revered sports trophies at its hollowware workshop in Rhode Island.
In 1851, Charles Lewis Tiffany entered an exclusive partnership with prominent silversmith, John C. Moore, to manufacture silver hollowware. Around this time, the U.S. adopted the jeweler’s standard for silver—925 parts per 1,00 —enhancing Tiffany’s growing reputation for excellence. Upon opening his hollowware workshop in Manhattan, Mr. Tiffany commissioned silversmiths or “Tiffany Makers” to handcraft trophies, beginning with the Woodlawn Vase in 1860. While the workshop has moved from Newark and Parsippany, New Jersey to its current location in Cumberland, Rhode Island, many of the techniques from a century ago are still used today. Each trophy is stamped with “TIFFANY & CO. MAKERS,” “Ag925” to denote sterling silver and an individually registered serial number.
Designing and crafting more than 65 custom trophies each year, Tiffany & Co. is the world’s authority in hollowware and has been for over a century and a half.
