EXHIBITIONS
Celebrate Art of the Tiffany Era – Three unique exhibitions…
The Tiffany family design legacy is celebrated in this unique mix of exhibitions featuring Louis Comfort Tiffany’s stained glass
of the art nouveau era and a rare collection of Tiffany & Co.’s decorative firearms. Charles Lewis Tiffany established Tiffany &
Co. in 1837; his son Louis Comfort Tiffany later founded Tiffany Studios, renowned for exquisite decorative objects.

  • Tiffany & Co. Arms from the collection of Robert M. Lee features the finest-known collection of privately owned arms—including fine guns and a presentation sword—rivaled only by those on view in the Robert M. Lee Gallery of

American Arms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
