1853 Wooden Atlas

This statue of Atlas bearing a clock graces the entrance of Tiffany's.

The City Review's Tiffany Building entry relates it was created by a friend of Tiffany's who carved ships' figureheads, and painted to resemble bronze. It has followed Tiffany's store around the city to its current home on 5th Avenue at 57th.
