Allan Adler 'Sunset' Pattern Mid-Century Modern Sterling Silver Flatware Service for 12, Los Angeles, California, c. 1950's
Allan Adler created lovely designs and his hand wrought silver is of very high quality. This bold mid-century design features decoration of three incised lines on the fronts and sides at the base of the handles. The handles are beautifully curved and feel great when being handled. Engraved on the backs of the handles are 'EWK' monograms.
The pieces in this elegant service are marked on the back 'ALLAN ADLER/ HANDHAMMERED/ STERLING' (interesting to note that some pieces are stamped with the incorrect spelling 'HANDHAMMERD'). The service weighs a total 72.35 troy ounces (not including the knives) and is in good antique condition with light surface wear.
