Dominick & Haff, the silversmiths, of 860 Broadway, New York, inform the trade in this issue that design patent No. 18,614, for fire ornamentation of the handles of spoons, knives, forks and similar articles, granted to them September 18, 1888, has recently been sustained by the United States Circuit Court in a suit brought against prominent manufacturers who were infringing upon it, and an injunction has been granted. The design referred to, which has proved very salable, is illustrated in their advertisement. It is the declared intention of Dominick & Haff to continue to prosecute vigorously all who may be found infringing upon any of their patented designs.

THE DEATH LEROY B. HAFF

The jewelry trade was shocked last week at the news of the death of Leroy B. Haff of Dominick & Haff, New York, which occurred Sept. 18th at Paul Smith's in the Adirondacks, where Mr. Haff who had been suffering from pleurisy, had gone for the benefit of his health.


Image


Mr. Haff was born at Peru, N.Y. fifty-two years ago. He had been connected with the silverware business since 1867, when he entered as book keeper, the retail department of William Gale, manufacturing silversmith, whose retail business was then under the Metropolitan Hotel, New York. In 1869, Mr. Gale closed out his retail department and Mr. Haff was transferred to the wholesale department of Gale & Corning, at Broome and Mercer Sts. The next year he became a member of the firm, the name of which was changed to Gale, Dominick & Haff. Mr Gale took no active interest in the firm, but his name remained until 1872, when the firm took its present name of Dominick & Haff.

Two years later they removed to the first Waltham building, at 1, 3 and 5 Bond St., but when this structure was destroyed by fire in 1877, they changed their quarters to 7 and 9 Bond St. When the present building at Nos. 1, 3 and 5 was rebuilt, they moved back into it and remained there until 1884, when they again changed their quarters to the building in which they are now located at 860 Broadway. In 1888, when the firm was organized into a joint stock company, Mr. Haff became vice-president and treasurer, and his partner, H. B. Dominick, president of the concern. For many years Mr. Haff had lived at Englewood.N. J., where he became a conspicuous figure in public affairs and charitable enterprises. He was a director of the Bergen County Gas Co., one of the promoters and a governor of the Englewood Club, and a member of the Player's, Reform, and Grolier clubs, of New York. At the time of his death Mr. Haff held the position of senior warden of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Englewood.

Mr. Haff was known as a man of modest and retiring disposition, yet agressive When necessary. He was well liked and respected by all with whom he came in contact, and was universally regarded as a thoroughly honest, upright, and sagacious business man. While his death will be a severe blow to his relations and friends throughout the country, the loss will be most deeply felt by the concern of Dominick & Haff. To Mr. Dominick particularly is the death of Mr. Haff a keen blow, as between himself and the deceased, there existed for the past twenty-five years, the closest relations, both in business and private life. The portrait herewith is from the last photograph of Mr. Haff, which was taken eighteen years ago. Mr. Haff never married.


The funeral services took place Thursday afternoon, in Peru, N. Y.

Among the beautiful desk appointments which the market now displays, the line of solid silver letter racks manufactured by Dominick & Haff, 860
Broadway, New York, is worthy of earnest attention. As the cut well shows, the workmanship in these pieces is in keeping with that in the regular lines manufactured by this company, and will add to the firm’s reputation as producers of artistic silver work.
