A sword by Tiffany would have been sold by  the jewelry store, not the firms associated with the glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany. Our library does not have archives for the store.   The firm does have a website,, where one can ask questions. Regarding swords, they did have a statement "Tiffany & Co. made thousands of swords during the Civil War.  However, we can only provide historical research on those who are marked "Tiffany & Co., makers". 

Internet and book research has yielded a few references to the Civil War swords.  I am not sure if the sword to which you refer was one given for service in the Civil War, or more a ceremonial one, given to someone such as a mayor of Brooklyn.  

I would suggest you contact the store or the website to pursue this.
