In 1905 Elizabeth Owens Morse, the daughter of Charles Hosmer Morse and Martha Owens Morse, married Richard Genius. The gift registry of this socially prominent Chicago bride—entitled “The Bride Elect”—survives in the Morse Museum’s archive, showing more than 250 gifts. Together these items provide a snapshot of the era, a glimpse into 1905 gift-giving traditions, and some insight into popular retail decisions made by wealthy consumers in the Chicago area. In this new exhibition, the Morse presents a representative group of the lovely gifts that survive from the Morse-Genius wedding, including Tiffany art glass, Rookwood pottery, and Gorham silver.
The Louis Comfort Tiffany Chronology, the Morse Museum’s authoritative timeline of Tiffany’s life, is now available on our website. It is currently as thorough a chronological listing of the basic facts of Tiffany’s personal and professional development as we know exists and will be updated as research reveals new information. Search by year, by a category of his life, or by keywords. Search “Favrile glass,” for example, to find what has been reported and recorded on Tiffany’s work in the medium for which he is best known. Entries in the chronology—which span from the birth of his grandfather in 1777 through the present day—are compiled from various sources including books, articles, contemporaneous accounts and records, as well as our own archival material.
