Sugar Bowl

Designed by Edward C. Moore (American, 1827–1891) Made by Tiffany & Co., New York (1837–present)
This sugar bowl reveals the powerful influence of non-Western art on Tiffany & Company. Fashioned in the Moresque style, its design was inspired by Spanish Islamic architecture and Persian metalwork. At the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle, Tiffany’s display received the first-ever medal awarded to an American silver manufacturer.
