James Robinson, Inc. Silverware
Most sterling silver flatware tends toward the traditional styles that look as if they have been handed down through generations even if they are brand new. And much of the interesting contemporary designs are made in stainless steel. The perfect marriage between the two might be found in this silver Apollo flatware from James Robinson. The James Robinson store in New York has long been the home of high quality silver. They hand forge each piece from a bar of sterling silver. The result of this painstaking process is that each piece is more durable and can be used everyday and tossed in the dishwasher without fear. Most of their designs are the fiddle, shell, and scroll designs seen in homes for centuries but they also have a few more modern designs such as the delightfully thin Apollo. Such craftsmanship is not cheap, five-piece settings can cost over $1,000.
