Alphonse La Paglia was a silversmith and designer, born in Italy but working in the USA, who 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 some American designers to supply the Jensen shop.
 
La Paglia continued to make pieces for Jensen USA until about 1949. In 1952, La Paglia became affiliated with the International Silver Company and moved to Meriden, CT. La Paglia died in November 1953.
 
The bracelet is marked “International; Sterling; Alphonse La Paglia”.
