The rich faceting of Lafayette's hammered finish captures the look of antique sterling, where the craftsman's careful planishing blows added intricate design to the simplest of forms. Here the common round tip becomes a detailed and sparkling design that adds rich complement to a casual brunch or a formal dinner; truly, the perfect pattern for every occasion. Designed by Wes Helmick. In the 15th and 16th century in the colonial period, the silver tableware was made from silver coins, since our country did not have any silver mines at this time. The coins were melted down, shaped, and hammered to their final form. Lafayette is a beautiful rendition of the hand hammered flatware of the colonial period.
