Alphonse LaPaglia was a silversmith and designer who made some wonderful pieces during the 1940s and early 1950s. 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.
