Description

Elsa Peretti began her career in the early 1970s as a fashion model and soon began designing fashion accessories. In 1974, Tiffany & Co. engaged her to design jewelry, and in 1978, she turned her talents to holloware. Of all her silver designs, this tureen is arguably the most important. Fabricated by leading Florentine silversmiths in limited quantities, this design treats the shimmering silver like water in its undulating forms and fluid lines.
