La Paglia Sterling Silver Demitasse Tea Service by International Sterling

$1,950per set

About

American sterling silver coffee/tea demitasse set designed by Alphonse La Paglia (1907-1953), a Sicilian-born silversmith who studied and trained with Georg Jensen, and retailed by International Sterling. Georg Jensen, a Danish silversmith, set up his own silver business in 1904 in Copenhagen. Jensen's training in metalsmithing along with his education in the fine arts allowed him to combine the two disciplines and revive the tradition of the artist craftsman. Soon, the beauty and quality of his creations caught the eye of the public and his success was assured. The Copenhagen quarters were greatly expanded and before the end of the 1920s, Jensen had opened retail in Berlin (1909), London (1921), and New York (1924). He designed this special line in 1952, for only 1 year. Each of the items are marked on underside "International Sterling La Paglia Designed 188" as shown in photos. Also, the set features a velvet-backed wooden box. The items' gross weight is 34 troy ounces. The tea cups each measure 2" in height and in depth. The individual saucers measure 4'' in diameter. The International Silver Company was formed in 1898 by various independent New England silversmiths that, between 1898 and 1903, joined themselves together to form a company that became the world's largest manufacturer of silverware. The International Silver Co. was organized with an authorized capital of $20,000,000.
