Allan Adler was an American silversmith whose design journey began as an apprentice to, his father-in-law, Porter Blanchard in 1938. Adler developed to be known as the “silversmith for the stars” designing miniature Oscars for the academy awards and creating decorative objects for Hollywood's biggest names. He made his mark on the Modernist movement through the creation of his flatware in the 1950s. Allan Adler flatware stood out because of his handmade quality coupled with sleek design. Each piece was hand forged with individual care and attention, making it extremely strong and balanced. Today, Allan Adler silver designs continue to be hand crafted with traditional methods that have been handed down to Allan Adler's son and grandson.
