Vintage Palmer Smith Aluminum Leaf Dish
Arthur Palmer was employed at the Wendell August Forge for a number of years before he left to start his own operation. While at the Forge he traveled extensively, exploring the market places for trends future buyer interests. His products remain timeless in design.
All Palmer-Smith aluminum ware was made before the outbreak of WWII. As with the entire aluminum giftware industry, the Palmer-Smith forge had to close during the WWII demand for aluminum, and it did not reopen afterwards although the Palmer-Smith line was continued in a new industry, creating beautiful linens and other accessories.
This aluminum dish most likely dates to the 1940s and is stamped with the logo and a "196" on the bottom. Some vintage wear with age.
Approx 14" long, 8" wide
