Jensen USA by LaPaglia Sterling Sauce Ladle
Known for his Danish Modern style, Alphonse LaPaglia worked first for Jensen USA in the 1940's, then for International, before dying in the early 1950's. This 5 5/8" long, nearly 1.2 T. oz., sauce ladle is from his earlier years. It is marked "Georg Jensen Inc.," "USA," along with "Sterling," model number "103," and "L.P." for LaPaglia. An unnamed pattern, it is decidedly in a manner consistent with LaPaglia's typical work and somewhat in the direction of Jensen's "Blossom." It is in flawless condition, with fine surface scratches in the bowl being the only signs of use.
