Porter Blanchard taught his son-in-law and renowned designer Allan Adler (the silversmith to the stars) the craft of silversmithing and was the one of the founders of the Arts amp Crafts movement in California, after moving from Boston where 5 generations had been in silversmithing. Blanchard bridged the Arts and Crafts and Modern movements. Blanchard's exploration into progressive design began with the silver he exhibited at the 1928 Exhibition of the Decorative Arts at the National Arts Club in New York.Unique Mid-century Modern Porter Blanchard sterling silver amp Lucite handle Flatware set.
