Dia. 4 in.provenance:Exhibited in the 1901 Buffalo, Pan-American Exposition, this vaseshares many similarities with a teaservice designed by Farnham andalso exhibited at the Pan-AmericanExposition, now in the collection ofthe Newark Museum. GeorgePaulding Farnum studied in thestudio of Tiffanys chief designer,Edward C. Moore, and in 1885became his assistant. His skill as adesigner and sculptor was

    recognized by Moore and CharlesLewis Tiffany. At the age of 27 hewas selected to create the Tiffanyjewelry collection that would be sentto Paris for the ExpositionUniverselle of 1889. Farnum andTiffany recieved the gold Medal forjewelry. With Moores death in 1891,Farnum became Tiffanys chiefdesigner of both jewelry and thesilver collections. Inspired by Asian,Islamic and American Indiandesigns, Tiffany & Co. won awardsat the Worlds Columbian Expositionin 1893. For the Pan-AmericanExposition, Farnum sought newdesign inspiration from Viking,Byzantine, and Roman artifacts.Artistic disagreements betweenFarnum and his new employer, LewisComfort Tiffany, began with thedeath of Charles Louis Tiffany in1902. In 1908, Farnum left Tiffany &Co. and the creation of jewelry andsilver to pursue other interests. Oneof his best known works is theAugust Belmont Memorial Cup$30,000-50,000
