Summerall Chapel and P T barracks at The Citadel. While the chapel can seat 1200, it has a surprisingly intimate feel. Its cornerstone was laid when @charlestonsilversmith was a day old. Sixty years later, he restored the state seal that hangs over PT barracks, fabricating missing letters and waking up at 2am to apply the adhesive that would receive the gold leaf. #themaster #silversmith #elcid #summerallchapel #military #college #thestories #barracks #brass #southcarolina #charleston
Well looked what the Easter Bunny dropped off: the papers from the tenth Henry D Green symposium! I am so honored that my paper on the Salzburger chalice is among such distinguished scholarship. Even better-we have them available! DM for details #useyoursilver #scholarship #georgiamatters #georgiamuseumofart #uga #universityofgeorgia #symposium #augsburg #salzburger #europeansilver

Coco Chanel said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” If her wares are any indication, London silversmith Elizabeth Tookey was both. The widow of James Tookey, spoonmaker, she became master of her husband’s shop, like so many widows. A spoon marked by Elizabeth and bearing the same date mark as this spoon, belonged to Bathurst and Martha Skelton. The Skelton spoon found its way to Monticello when widow Martha Skelton married her third cousin, Thomas Jefferson, on New Year’s Day 1772. Interestingly, Jefferson began construction of his iconic home in 1768. DM for more details on this fabulous spoon! #useyoursilver #englishsilver #womensilversmiths #elizabethtookey #silverspoon #georgiansilver #thomasjefferson #monticello #cocochanelquotes #womenartisans #antiquesofinstagram #charleston #charlestonantiques #southcarolina
Happy Tartan Day! This day commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence (Declaration of Arbroath) was signed in 1320. The American founding fathers looked to this document some 456 years later for guidance.

We are profoundly saddened by the loss of an incomparable man this week, Al Crabtree. Words fail to express the vast void left in so many hearts and the world of the craft. He is probably swapping techniques and sharing a scotch with the other great silversmiths that have gone before him.
We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support. Please keep our family in your thoughts and, if so inclined, prayers during this time. #crabtreestrong #toknowhimistolovehim
