Brooklyn Bridge's Got Bling

I was reading a nice historical plaque, situated on one of the Brooklyn Bridge's stone towers, the other day. It told the story of the good old Roebling tribe. But what do I see in the lower right-hand corner in tiny letters? The fashioner of the plaque: Tiffany & Co.

Swan-KY! Appropriate enough: the company is older than the bridge! But did the plaque dome in robins-egg-blue box?

Good grief. I've read that sign a million times and *never* noticed the T&Co signature. Sigh. Thanks for pointing it out, though!
