John Chandler Moore
Birth Place: New Jersey
In 1831 Moore began his career as a silversmith in New York, NY. The following year he partnered with Garrett Eoff working as “Eoff & Moore” until 1836. Ball, Tompkins, and Black contracted Moore upon his departure from Eoff to produce several pieces for the company, notably tea sets. When his son, Edward Charles Moore, came of age, he initiated him in the trade and from 1848-1855 worked the pair worked as “J.C. Moore & Son.” In 1851 Tiffany, Young, and Ellis secured a contract with the Moore firm to produce silverware exclusively for them. In a departure from the accepted medium of coin silver in America, Tiffany ordered Moore’s pieces to be crafted of sterling. Under Moore’s direction, Tiffany & Company soon dominated the domestic silver market. He relied on his vast design library to draft new and competitive design elements which mingled Asian, Middle/Far Eastern, and European glass and ceramic influences. In 1878, Moore’s accolades under Tiffany included the Grand Prize for Excellence at the 1878 Paris Exhibition, the first such prize awarded to an American silversmith. Edward would create Tiffany’s celebrated “Audubon” pattern flatware in 1871, and Tiffany would produce this pattern for over a century. Tiffany retained Edward on its staff as creative director and lead silversmith for almost 40 years.
