Remembering Bunny Mellon with Pierce MacGuire

Meryl Gordon’s diligently researched and well-written biography, Bunny Mellon: The Life of an American Style Legend, led me to lunch recently with longtime Tiffany executive Pierce MacGuire, who over four decades oversaw sales for Elsa Perretti’s, Paloma Picasso’s, and Jean Schlumberger’s collections at the fabled store.  Thus, he was in frequent contact with Paul and Bunny Mellon, who were Schlumberger’s leading customers for decades.
