Something from Tiffany’s in New York is Inside Michigan’s Capitol Building
I learned something recently that I wanted to share. And for as much as I love a good trivia night, I am so surprised I didn't know this fact about Michigan. I'm going to chalk it up to I wasn't paying attention when my fifth-grade class took a tour of the Capitol in Lansing...
Here's a fun fact about Michigan that you may or may not have known;
Something from Tiffany's in New York is Inside the Michigan Capitol building.
Tiffany's in New York Designed Something One-of-a-Kind for Michigan's Capitol Building
And not just once something... 19 somethings.

According to Circle Michigan,
The ninteen chandeliers in the Capitol in Lansing are one of a kind and designed especially for the building by Tiffany’s of New York. Weighing between eight and nine hundred pounds apiece they are composed of copper, iron, and pewter.
But that's not all. We learn from the Capitol Facts on this website that the chandeliers are very intricately designed, too.
The Capitol’s Michigan chandeliers feature an elk that rests his front hoof on a brass shield. The shield bears the word “Tuebor,” which means “I will defend.” Both the elk and the shield are from the Michigan coat of arms.
How cool is this little nugget of knowledge? I don't know about you but I'm definitely going to lock that away for future trivia knowledge.
