Stone (1847-1938), one of the last independent American silversmiths to make silver by hand, was a major promoter of the Arts and Crafts tenets of beautiful, yet functional design. His influential work as a designer and craftsman set the standard for a generation of apprentices who were trained in hand-working techniques at his highly respected workshop in Gardner, Massachusetts. At a time when mass production was replacing hand-crafted silver making, Stone organized and ran one of the few studios where craftsmen were involved in every step of the silvermaking process." (dj).
