HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT AMERICAN SILVER AND GOLD QUARTZ PAPERWEIGHT, Tiffany & Company, maker, for John Pierpont Morgan
marked JPM (for John Pierpont Morgan) dated 1895; length: 4 3/4 in.; width: 3 3/8 in; height: 2 in.

Provenance: From a Private Indiana Collection.

Other Notes: In 1895, the United States economy was reeling from the effects of the Panic of 1893, and there was little gold left in the U.S. Treasury. In an effort to prop up the failing U.S. economy, John Piermont Morgan orchestrated the loan of enough gold to restore the Treasury surplus, thereby bringing the economy out of the worst of its depression. This silver and gold quartz paperweight, made by Tiffany & Company, monogrammed JPM on one side and dated 1895 on the other, serves a powerful symbol of Morgan's role in this pivotal moment in United States history.
