At the office of Tiffany & Co., Saturday, the truth of a report from Detroit that a young man named Tiffany connected with Tiffany &Co., had been ill in a hospital of that city, was emphatically denied. “C. L. Tiffany is the only person of that name in the firm,” said The Circular’s informant.

Tiffany & Co. recently completed for shipment abroad a fine silver testimonial that is to be presented to the manager of the “Metallgesellschaft” of Germany. The gift is in the form of a beautiful sterling silver shield, weighing nearly a hundred ounces, presented by the American Metal Co. to Herr Zachary Hochschild, of Frankfort-a-Main, Germany, on the occasion of his 25th anniversary as manager of the ‘‘Metallgesellschaft.” The central figure of the design is a graceful Indian maiden, resting her outstretched right arm on a large medalion. In her hand is a scroll bearing the dates 1872-1897. In the medalion is a fine portrait in bold relief of Zachary Hochschild and a laurel wreath. Below the portrait is the caduceus of Mercury, or rod of commerce. The left hand of the Indian maiden rests on another medalion containing in bold relief the figure of a youth in studious attitude with a book and at his feet blocks of molten metal, a globe and an anchor. In the background are factories, railroads, telegraph and trolley lines. The inscription, which is in German, is etched upon an escutcheon resting on olive leaves and ivy. This also forms the border of the shield, which is about 19 inches long, and is mounted on a finely polished plaque of American laurel wood.

William Mauss, the employe of Tiffany & Co., who last week was arrested on the charge of stealing silver spoons from that firm has been discharged from custody. It was shown that Mauss was tempted to take the silverware to prevent himself from being lodged in jail for not paying his dues in the regiment to which he belongs, and Superintendent Hyde, of Tiffany & Co., withdrew the complaint.

William P. Hood, Jr. in his bookTiffany Silver Flatware, illustrates an ice cream spoon in this pattern with the same markings as your server on p. 31, Figure 29. He doesn't name the pattern, but attributes it to George Sharp, a Philadelphia silversmith, active c.1850-1874, who worked mainly with Bailey & Co., but also for Tiffany.

New York people will readily remember George T. Reed who used to be with Tiffany & Co. He is now President of the Arena Publishing Co. here. The Arena is a magazine of the Forum variety, and makes a most attractive appearance.

Joseph Du Prado, of Tiffany & Co.’s Paris house arrived by the La Normandie on May 26, on a visit to their New York establishment. The last time Mr. Du Prado visited this country was twenty-four years ago. Tiffany & Co. were then at their old store, 550 Broadway, and the site of their present magnificent establishment was occupied by a church, which was considered in those days up-town in the fashionable resident district. The visitor will hardly be less astonished at the strides this house has made since that time, than at the wonderful development of the entire city, especially the up-town portion.

The Death of Captain Joseph Lindauer

Captain Joseph Lindauer, for 32 years an employe of Tiffany & Co., New York, died March 7. A year ago he had a stroke of paralysis from which he never recovered; another stroke followed in October, after which he was confined to his bed until relieved by death. Captain Lindauer was born Jan. 17, 1835, at Pilsen, Austria. He learned his trade of clockmaker at Pilsen and at Prague. In 1865 he came to this country, and the same year was engaged by Tiffany & Co., then at 550-552 Broadway, as clock repairer. He proved so proficient that the firm soon gave him charge of their clock repairing and clockmaking department.

He gathered about him a force of expert clockmakers that has become noted for great ability, especially in the adjustment of the most intricate and complicated mechanisms. He was also well known to many experts and amateurs in fine mechanisms, who recognized his remarkable intelligence and skill in horological work. Under Mr. Lindauer's direction many complicated astronomical clocks have been entirely constructed, several of which have been exhibited by Tiffany & Co. at the Paris and Chicago Expositions.

Joseph Lindauer received his title of Captain as commander of Company H, Eleventh Regiment, in which he served for many years, and retired before the regiment was disbanded. He was a member of the Jewelers’ League.
