Wm. MacNice, a young man employed by the Alvin Mfg. Co., 4 Maiden Lane, last Tuesday showed J. Verschuur, with the same company, two diamonds which he had found in the street at the corner of Liberty Place and Maiden Lane. Mr. Verschuur at once recognized the stones to be valuable, being about 4½ karats each, and detected the name H. E. Oppenheimer & Co. on the paper containing them. Mr. Verschuur called upon the diamond firm and asked them if they missed the pair of stones. The firm replied that they had missed the stones about two hours previously, but had no idea they had been blown out of the window. Mr. Oppenheimer handed $10 with thanks to Mr. Verschuur to be given to the Alvin & Co.’s honest young man.

The Alvin Mfg. Co. last week sent a solid gold spoon from one of the Columbian dies for ex-assemblyman William L. Glorieux, who has sent it to senator Jas. Smith, Jr. Only two of these gold spoons have been manufactured, the first one having been presented to President Grover Cleveland.

Lights are to be seen in the factory of the Alvin Mfg. Co , 24 Boudinot street, Newark, N. J., until far into the evening. Notwithstanding the fact that they have largely increased their facilities, put in new machinery, and are now employing about 65 hands, overtime is still necessary. They are showing many new examples of their beautiful “ Alvin Ornamentation,” a process of electro depositing silver on crystal glass, of which the concern makes a specialty. This rich and brilliant effect is conspicuous in scent bottles, colognes, claret jugs and fine stationery novelties. They have also added many new shapes and styles to their line of cane and umbrella heads, deposited on ivory, tortoise shell, pearl and fancy woods. Among these we may mention a quaint conceit in the form of an old shoe in oxidized silver, with the big toe of the foot protruding and the ankle above covered with an old-fashioned worsted stocking forming the stock of the handle. Engraved on the stock appears the following well-known quotation from Shakespeare, somewhat perverted to suit the application : “ There’s a divinity that shapes our ends rough—hew them how we will.”

LOVING CUP PRESENTED TO CAPTAIN NATHANIEL B. CHURCH

The work of the Alvin Manufacturing Co.


Image


One of the loving cups, recently produced, that has won admiration from lovers of fine silversmithing, was presented to Captain Nathaniel B.
Church, Tiverton, R. I., the president of the Fisheries Co., at the seventh annual Captains' Dinner, given Feb. 15, in the Astor House, New York.
The company has a series of factories extending all the way from Maine to South Carolina, and the dinner given each year to the captains of the
Menhaden Fishing Fleet has become a unique social event.

Captain Church, who has risen from the command of one of the boats to the position of head of the company, thoroughly enjoys meeting the men at these occasions, and they are always delighted with his hospitality.

At the recent dinner copies were distributed of a handsome book containing the photographs of the captains and superintendents who were present, with a brief sketch of the career of each, published on the page facing his picture. The event of the evening — the presentation of the loving cup — was a surprise to Captain Church, who expressed his hearty appreciation of the compliment and the testimonial of good will.

The cup is gracefully fashioned with three dolphin handles, the tails of the dolphins obtruding above the upper edge, while the heads are at the base. Around the body are rope designs and sea weed effects. The silver is in a French gray finish, and the inside of the cup is gilded. The etching of the inscription and of the two pictures is particularly clever. One picture, set in a panel, represents the George W. Humphrey, a fishing vessel which was lost this year, and of which Captain Church was the original commander. On another panel is represented the company’s first factory at Tiverton, R. I.

The inscription is as follows : “Presented to Nathaniel B. Church in appreciation of his hospitality, and as a token of esteem and regard of his friends and associates of the Fisheries Co., Feb. 15, 1905.”

The cup was ordered through Bagg, Perine & Co., New York, and was made by the Alvin Mfg. Co., New York.

The first has at the top of the handle an image of the children’s patron saint, while on the decorated stem appear the words ” Merry Christmas.” The bowl contains a representation of a Christmas tree. The second, called the ‘‘ Tennyson New Year Spoon” has entwined around the handle the quotation. ‘‘Ring out the old, ring in the new.” The stem is tipped with three New Year’s bells and the bowl contains the wish. ‘‘Happy New Year.” The spoons are made in tea and coffee sizes.

The Alvin Manufacturing Co., of Newark, N. J. have just completed a very busy season. They have been driven to their utmost capacity to supply the demand for their Alvin ornamentation ware, which has received a most flattering reception from the trade throughout the country. They have in preparation a great many new shapes and styles in this handsome ware. Among some of the new articles for the coming season will be : Water and cream pitchers, champagne tankards, lamp shades, sugar bowls and various other wares suitable for the spring trade. In their silver novelty department are shown several new designs in cigarette and match boxes, plaster cases, pen wipers, book marks and various other small silver wares now so popular. Their designs, even in the smallest and most insignificant articles, show great originality of conception. Although doing business for only two years they are compelled to enlarge their capacity again for the third time since starting in business. The Alvin Co. has recently sent a notice to the trade throughout the country, a copy of which appears on another page, informing the trade that they are the sole owners of Patent No. 333,697 issued January 5th. 1886, which patent fully covers their process of ornamenting non-metallic articles by covering them with a deposit of pure silver or other metal by electrolysis and afterward cutting away a portion of the covering for the purpose of revealing the ground work. Work made under this patent is what is now so well known to the trade as Alvin ornamentation. They are fully determined to protect their rights in this matter.

Wm. H. Jamouneau, president of the Alvin M’f’g Co., 24 Boudinot st., Newark, N. J., sails for Europe on the 5th of March, by the German-Lloyd steamer, to be absent about two months. He will combine business and pleasure and on his return the trade will no doubt find that he has used his opportunities to good advantage.

Increase in the Manufacturing Facilities of the Alvin Mfg. Co.

The factory and plant of the Alvin Mfg. Co., now in Irvington, N. J., will about June 1st be removed to Sag Harbor, L. I. Members of the firm of Jos. Fahys & Co. recently acquired a considerable interest in the Alvin Mfg. Co., and the new factory will be located in the Fahys factory building in Sag Harbor. There will be no change in the office of the company, which remains at 4 Maiden Lane, New York. The same officers will direct the affairs of the company as heretofore. The new factory will afford the Alvin Mfg. Co. increased facilities for manufacturing their specialty, silver deposit ware, and will give them an opportunity to extend their hollow and flat ware lines. The Alvin Mfg. Co. have purchased from the receiver of the Wymble Mfg. Co. the factory and plant of that company in Woodside, N. J., and will continue the business of the Wymble Co. in connection with their own.

A Thieving Clerk and His Accomplice Caught

Nelson Clark, a young man in the employ of the Alvin Mfg. Co., 860 Broadway, New York, and Frank L. Bynner, were arrested last Wednesday on the charge of stealing from Clark’s employers. About three weeks ago Mr. Jamouneau, of the Alvin Co., reported to the police that his company were being robbed. Detectives were detailed to investigate and in a few days discovered articles that had been missed by Mr. Jamouneau in pawnshops in various parts of New York.

Wednesday detectives who were shadowing Clark saw him go to a hotel and converse with Bynner, after which the two went to a room. When the pair reappeared they were arrested. Clark confessed that he had taken all he could from the Alvin Mfg. Co., and had given the things to Bynner to dispose of. At the latter’s home, 523 Nostrand Ave., Brooklyn, silver goods worth $1,500 were found, together with fifty-seven pawn tickets; they form the bulk of the property which the Alvin Mfg. Co. lost. The two prisoners were held for trial.

Alvin Mfg. Co.'s Design Accepted as the Official World’s Fair Spoon

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24.—Two designs, both selected from a number submitted by the Alvin Mfg. Co., have been accepted by Chairman Butler, of the World's Fair Ways and Means Committee on Concessions as the official pattern of souvenir spoons to be sold on the grounds during the exposition. The spoons will be in three grades, plate, sterling and gilt. Inasmuch as the designs have not yet been patented by the Alvin Mfg. Co., the utmost secrecy is observed regarding their nature, but they will undoubtedly be symbolical of the great exposition and serve their purpose as souvenirs of the event.

In connection with their contract for the above spoons, B. F. Nortis, Alister & Co. have asked the leading manufacturers of the country to submit designs for spoons to be souvenirs of the Woman's Board, but no further definite action has yet been taken.
