Tiffany & Co. introduced the Streamerica collection of accessories and watches in 1990 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its New York headquarters.
Tiffany & Co.’s Streamerica is inspired by the aerodynamic principles of the 1939 New York World’s Fair, the Streamlined designed collection evolved from the profile of a DC-3 wing and the bolted metal sheeting of airplane construction. Steel and Industry symbolize America’s aspirations for progress and prosperity. A Timeless expression of Man’s fascination with speed and technology – and his desire to forge a better tomorrow.
Streamerica is a ground-breaking collection. Never before has Tiffany featured steel as a luxury material, but no other material could convey such a powerful message of contemporary sophistication and masculinity.
The Flatware line in stainless steel was one of the last additions to the streamerica line. Although they are really beautiful to look at and to use, I feel that their size was made a little too big and heavy. The small fork and spoon feel just about right, but the larger pieces are too bulky. I purchased two sets of these from the Tiffany store in Boca Raton, FL.
Years later I found on ebay the serving pieces that composed of a larger spoon and fork, and a smaller knife (pictured below) to be used for cheese or maybe even butter. I have never seen these again on ebay.

I saw advertisements on a regular basis the season they released these, mainly in Vanity Fair magazine. I also found the same photo in one of Tiffany’s blue book catalogs from 2000-2001.
