About Alphonse LaPaglia:
Alphonse LaPaglia was a silversmith and designer who made some wonderful pieces during the 1940s and early 1950’s. His career was covered in some detail in Silver magazine (May-June 1995). LaPaglia first burst onto the silver scene during WW II by creating pieces for Frederick Lunning at the Georg Jensen store in New York City. The war had cut off supplies of authentic Jensen silver, and Mr. Lunning contracted with a number of American firms to supply the Jensen shop. Many, but not all, of these pieces were created in the Jensen style.
LaPaglia continued to make pieces for Jensen USA until about 1949 from his shop in New Jersey. In 1952, LaPaglia became affiliated with the International Silver Company and moved to Meriden, CT. He set up a shop in the rear of his home, and with a handful of assistants became “International Sterling Craft Associates”. Unfortunately, LaPaglia died in November 1953. International bought the business and continued to operate the small shop for a short time. Later, the line was moved to the main International facility and much of the hand work was lost.
