This beautiful sterling silver ladle measures 4.5" long.

Alphonse La Paglia (1907-1953), was born in Sicily, and died in New Jersey.
He is best known as one of the artisans for Georg Jensen USA during the War years.

He created a beautiful range of holloware and jewelry "in the style of Jensen" during his short career as a silversmith. In 1950 he left Jensen, and left to open a musical instrument store. In 1952, International Silver set up LaPaglia in a workshop where he continued to produce. An unfortunate fall from his home's roof in 1953 resulted in a broken leg, blood clot and fatal heart attack.

Based on the maker's mark, it appears that this particular piece was made during Mr. LaPaglia's lifetime. It is "LAPAGLIA STERLING 100", in block letters. It does NOT bear the mark of Jensen USA nor International Silver. This would date to 1951-52.

After his death, his pieces were marked "La Paglia Designs" and "International Sterling".
