The Kalo Shop influenced the style and form of many Arts & Crafts
silversmiths, including Randahl, Lebolt, Eicher, Novick, the TC Shop, Mulholland,
and EDWARD BREESE.
BREESE WAS BORN IN ENGLAND AND WORKED AS A SILVERSMITH IN CHICAGO
FROM I921-1940 SOMETIMES FROM HIS HOME IN ARLINGTON HEIGHTS.
HE PRODUCED SOME OBJECTS FOR MATTHIAS HANCK, but had his own
His shop mark was a triangle containing his initials. See photos –
Many of his pieces were small like these salt and pepper shakers which
are heavily hammered.
Please view all the pictures as they are part of the description and
send an email if you have any questions. I liquidate and buy from
estates and private sellers, all items are sold in as found condition.
I DO NOT CUSTOMIZE, REFINISH OR REPAIR.
Most of my items are ANTIQUE OR Vintage with patina, which adds
to the charm of the item, and COULD show some wear from
age and use. There is a dent in the top of one of the shakers (see
photo #5) and they do need to be polished. Silver is very difficult to
photograph. It shows a lot of reflection. I have endeavored to
photograph and accurately describe them as to their condition and
authenticity. (PROVENANCE is AVAILABLE.) All Sales are Final. No
exchanges or refunds but contact me if you do have a problem.
