Dominick & Haff rarely appears as "D & H" on mixed metals spoons, although not marked as "Mixed Metals" in this case probably due to the demitasse size, these are beautiful examples. Have seen salt cellars and a cheese scoop in this pattern, usually leaf or insect or flower mixed metal elements, I believe a salamander has also been seen.

H. H. Evertsen Becomes Manager of Dominick & Haff’s Factory

Meriden, Conn., Jan. 8.—Henry H. Evertsen, of Wilcox & Evertsen, sterling department of the International Silver Co., will sever his connection with the above company this week. Mr. Evertsen intends taking a few days’ rest previous to his resuming the management of Dominick & Haff’s factory, New York, with whom he, as foreman and superintendent, was connected 22 years.

The firm of Wilcox & Evertsen came to Meriden within a few years, A few weeks ago Mr. Wilcox left the International Silver Co. to accept a good offer. Reports are in circulation to the effect that the sterling silver department will be transferred to Wallingford, but from what is learned it is safe to say no such change will occur.

THE DEATH OF ALEXANDER DOMINICK.


Image


Saturday, after an illness of six weeks, Alexander Dominick, the vice-president of Dominick & Haif, silversmiths, 860 Broadway, New York, passed away. He died from typhoid fever, at his residence, 52 E. 58th St., in the 40th year of his age. He came from one of the oldest American
families, being a descendant of George Dominique, a French Huguenot, who came to this country in 1740. His grandfather was James William Dominick, one of the executive committee of the American Bible Society and a trustee of the American Tract Society, and his father was James William Dominick, Jr., a merchant of New York.

Alexander Dominick was born and educated in New York city. When about 18 years old he entered the employ of Dominick & Half, of which firm his brother, H. Blanchard Dominick, is a partner. Here he became a salesman, and later, when the firm were incorporated into a company, in 1889, he was made secretary. After the death of the vice-president, Leroy B. Haff, last Fall, A. Dominick succeeded the deceased in that office. Altogether he was connected with the firm for about 22 years, and contributed much to the success of the business.

Mr. Dominick was noted for his genial and kindly disposition, which made and retained for him numerous friends throughout his business and social life. His wife, who was a Miss Genevieve Bonnell, of New York, and a daughter, survive him. Mr. Dominick was a member of the Jewelers’ League and of the Union League Club, 7th Reg’t Veterans’ Club, the Players’ Club and Larchmont Yacht Club, and also of the Huguenot Society and Sons of the Revolution.

The funeral services were held yesterday morning at his late residence, the interment being at Woodlawn Cemetery.

The Inventory of the Estate of the Late Leroy B. Haff

An inventory of the personal estate of the late Leroy B. Haff, of Dominick & Haff, New York, was filed in the Bergen County Surrogate's office, at Hackensack, N. J., last week. Mr. Haff was a resident of Englewood, N. J., although the great bulk of his property is in New York, and it is believed to be nearly all personal, excepting his home at Englewood. The will under which the division will be made was executed in October, 1&80, and has been admitted to probate in New York and Hackensack. Mr. Haff was a bachelor, who lived from boyhood with an aunt, Mrs. Mary Barber. When Mr. Haff made his will he bequeathed one-half of it to his aunt, making special provision that, in case that share should not equal, or exceed, $10,000, she should receive at least that sum. The other one-half is to go in equal shares to Mr. Haff’s brothers and sisters, who are described as follows: Frank S. Haff, Frankfort, Ky. Ralph Haff, Harriet G. Haff, Luella H. Haff, Anna M. Haff, all of Peru, N. Y. Delia B. Sanderson, Holyoke, Mass.; Emma A. Adams, Newburyport, Mass.; Helen M. Belden, East Whitely, Mass.; Julia A. Smith, Saratoga, N. Y. ; Sylvia G. Knowles, Bloomingdale, N. Y.

Mrs. Barber is to have the use of the personal effects of the dead man during her lifetime, if she wishes; otherwise they are to be divided among his brothers and sisters. All other property is to be sold as soon as possible and the proceeds divided as indicated. The inventory developed somewhat of a surprise to all save the few intimately acquainted with Mr. Haff’s affairs, as it foots up $427,032.05, which is only the personal estate. The value of his realty cannot be learned at present.

The inventory bears the signatures of Donald Mackay, of the Stock Exchange, and William L. Bigelow, a lawyer, as appraisers. The principal item is 1,075 shares of the Dominick & Haff stock, par $100, inventoried at $175, or a total of $188,125. There is also nearly $40,000 cash and a large
amount in railroad bonds. The estate is subject to a 5 per cent, inheritance tax in New Jersey and NewYork. H. B. Dominick and L. B. Bunnell are the executors.

Dominick & Haff, one of the largest silver houses in New York, will open a branch factory in the Bliss building, North Attleboro, in the near future. This concern is one of the oldest and most prosperous in the country, and it is said that if everything goes well it is the intention of the firm to move its entire plant to North Attleboro.

The elegant silver punch set, consisting of bowls, 12 cups, ladle and tray, presented by the citizens of Denver to the cruiser Denver, is on exhibition at Boyd Park's in this city. The metals of which the set is composed are copper, gold and silver, all products of the State. The designs and decorations were suggested by Boyd Park and executed in New York at Dominick & Haff’s. The bowl, which is of sterling silver, lined with gold, holds 40 quarts of liquid, and is edged with a large twisted rope of old silver festooned in sailor knots. The base is surmounted by two large eagles in copper and the pedestal is handsomely decorated in heavily applied work. Two large seals, one of the city of Denver and one of the navy, are cut in relief and set on each side of the cruiser design. At either side of the bowl are two nymphs holding out wreaths of laurel, which serve for handles. The tray is 36 inches in diameter and is edged with copper. At either side repose spread eagles in native copper cut in relief in the edge of the tray. The cups are miniature representations of the bowl, each bearing the city seal in relief. The same idea is carried out in the ladle, the bowl of which is gold.

The 1886 Charleston Earthquake


Mr. James Allan, of Charleston, writes as follows: “In looking over the names of contributors to the Charleston sufferers I do not see the name of Messrs. Dominic & Haff, and I would like to see their name enrolled among the contributors. I think about the 3d day after the shock came a telegram from them: ‘ Draw on us for the benefit of your Relief Committee.’ The amount contributed was a handsome one and much appreciated.”

Silver Service for Cruiser Cincinnati

With New York, Detroit and other cities as a precedent the citizens of Cincinnati raised a sum of money by voluntary subscriptions to defray the cost of a sterling silver service to be donated to the new cruiser Cincinnati as a recognition of the honor done the Queen City in the naming of the war vessel. A fortnight ago, after two years of anticipation the committee on awarding the contract for the silver service held its most important session in the office of the Mayor, and accepted one of the three designs submitted by Clemens Hellebush. The firms of Duhme Co , F. R. Herschede, A. & J. Plant, Clemens Oskamp and Oskamp, Nolting & Co., as well as the successful firm, each submitted competitive designs, the services proposed being without exception, elaborate and beautiful.

The committee were highly pleased with one of the three sets offered by Mr. Hellebush, and accepted it in preference to all others. The service selected includes a punch bowl and two fruit dishes, and two or three other pieces will be added later, which have not yet been determined upon. The bowl proper will be upon a base of fancy sea shells, and the figures of dolphins will serve as handles. It will be made one-third larger than it was specified in the design, but the fruit dishes will be of the dimensions designed. The bowl will weigh about 350 ounces and the dishes 100 ounces. The inscriptions on the drawing are subject to change, but will be about as presented.

There has already been collected the sum of $3,300, and more is being solicited. The service will be manufactured by Dominick & Haff, New York. The work is to be completed by Jan. 1, 1895, and is now in progress.
