Heavy Forks by James H. Kelly of Pottsville and Lebanon
click for details
Offered is a set of three heavy coin silver table forks by little-known Pottsville and Lebanon, Pennsylvania jeweler James H. Kelly. The first mention I have found of Kelly is a newspaper advertisement run in 1846 by Kelly, seeking an apprentice watchmaker to work with him in Pottsville. Mr. Kelly stayed in Pottsville until at least the late 1850s, as his son was born in Pottsville in 1855 and the family relocated to Lebanon, PA when the son was "quite small." In Lebanon, James H. Kelly... Click for details
