Historical note (via 925-1000.com): Alphonse LaPaglia was born in Sicily and studied silversmithing with Georg Jensen. In 1952, he began a collaboration with International Silver Co. to create Danish inspired Mid-Century Modernist silver, and moved his workshop to Meriden, CT. Following La Paglia's unexpected death of a heart attack at the age of 46, the rights to his designs became the property of International and were continued into production. CONDITION: Mirror and top to perfume bottle have a few small, minor dents. Otherwise, all items in very good condition.
