Tiffany & Co has been pilloried on social media for its new home products range, which includes a sterling silver tin can being sold at £945.

The luxury jewellery retailer and brand’s new range, known as Everyday Objects, also features an £8475 ball of yarn, £330 salt & pepper shakers, £260 letter opener, straws for either £275 or £330, a £285 yo-yo, and a £400 protractor.

Most of the items are made of sterling silver, with some featuring American walnut or gold, and Tiffany & Co claims the range “transforms utilitarian items into handcrafted works of art”.

“What makes the [Everyday Objects] collection unique is that it incorporates the best quality, craftsmanship and design with a level of functionality that allows you to use these things every day,” Tiffany & Co chief artistic director Reed Krakoff said.

However, the range’s high prices attracted the attention of Twitter users, with the tin can and ball of yarn attracting the most criticism.
