MOORE, Edward Charles, silversmith, born in New York city, 30 August, 1827. He learned the trade of silver-smithing from his father, John C. Moore, succeeded to the business in 1854, and in 1867 transferred his silver works to Tiffany and Co., of which he has since had charge. Being a practical workman the application of steam, the introduction of machinery, such as the steam trip-hammer, the polishing and drawing of wire, and the use of gas for soldering and melting in his business, have largely been the result of his influence. The tea services that he made for Mrs. Mary J. Morgan and for Prince Demidoff are regarded as among the finest examples of repoussee silver-ware that were ever made. Through his work, more than anything else, American silver has been raised to its present high standard, and at the World's fair, held in Paris in 1867, he received a personal gold medal for his efforts. His study of leather and its application to the arts has resulted in this country's obtaining the first rank for fine leather-work. He has given attention to antique, Persian, Arabic, Roman, and other glass, and to Japanese arts in their higher branches. Mr. Moore's library and collections 'are among the most complete in his specialties in the United States.
