Paulding Farnham designed a monumental Renaissance Revival tea and coffee service for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. The winged female figures that form the handles were based on similar figures by the artist Hans Holbein the Younger (1497?-1543), an artist Farnham must have admired as he also produced a piece of jewelry after a Holbein design. The service was so successful that Tiffany introduced additional hollow ware forms and a flatware line in the Renaissance Revival pattern the following year.
