Arthur Stone is highly regarded for the fine handwrought silver produced by him personally and by the workshop he started in 1901. His shop employed and trained many fine silversmiths who later established their own shops, like George Blanchard. Stone did most of the designing himself, and he personally supervised the work until his retirement in 1937. The company then became Stone Associates, and remained in business until 1957, all the while maintaining high standards of quality. Stone silver is characterized by its simplicity of form and careful attention to detail. Everything was made by hand. The "Benchmen's mark" indicated which of the Stone silversmiths made each piece (as notated below). This very fine handwrought sterling 7-piece tea set was made by the Arthur Stone workshop. The set is dated from about 1925 with "Cav" monogram for Alan C. Vedder. The set includes
