Glendenning was by his own telling a street kid from Gardner who discovered Stone's workshop, became enthralled with the goings on there, and was taken in by the great master of American Arts & Crafts silver as an apprentice. The youngest of the original members, he is said to have claimed that "Stone made me a silversmith and made me a gentleman."

In 1936, he left to form a partnership with George Erickson, which lasted until 1971. Subsequently he worked on his own, making a limited number of silver objects, though these are scarce.

This small (size 6) ring is of significant interest to the collector of Arthur Stone's silver. Decorated objects by individual craftsmen are rare, and we're quite pleased to offer one here. Heavy and well-crafted, in excellent condition, weight 9.6 grams.
