Building of the Transcontinental Railroad: An American Silver Tray
Two handled Oval Presentation Tray
Edward C. Moore for Tiffany and Company
New York
Circa 1869
"Presented to Louis Carmichael, by Friends and Companions Engaged in Building the Union Pacific Rail Road as a Token of Affection and Esteem 1869" - SOLD


An American Silver Tray
Two handled Oval Presentation Tray, entire view

The tray engraved with presentation inscription surrounded by four oval vignettes engraved with scenes of the building of the Railroad entitled:
"Side Cut Green River Valley Carmichael's Work"
"Western approach to Dale Creek Bridge"
"Heavy Rock Cut near Red Buttes"
"Carmichael's Cut Bitter Crease from East end" all linked by scrolling foliage on matted ground with at intervals, handles rising from stylized foliage. Together with four large reproduction photographs of which three show sites depicted on tray and New York Tribune dated 11 May 1869.

The tray is engraved: "Presented to Louis Carmichael, by Friends and Companions Engaged in Building the Union Pacific Rail Road as a Token of Affection and Esteem 1869" surrounded by the words "Industry", "Honest" and "Ability". In 1865 the Union Pacific selected Louis Carmichael as a grading contractor for the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. He and his team overcame substantial difficulties in Wyoming and northern Utah. To mark his success on the eve of completion on 10 May 1869 Carmichael was presented with a large silver service at a reception. The Utah Daily Reporter recorded the event as follows: "On the 11th inst. at the Jenks House, at Echo City, Mr. Louis Carmichael, the king of graders, was presented with an elegant set of solid silver with $5,000.00 by his companions and employees of the road." Part of this service was donated to the Utah Historical Society by Carmichael's great-granddaughter Elizabeth Schutt.
The tray is marked on back and numbered 1495-3864, 26
(W measured handle-to-handle: 33 3/8", 167oz 10dwt)

Silver Ladle, Bright Cut, Engraved Border
Signed LR for Louis Robitaille
Frontier Silversmith, Mississippi Valley
Probably Detroit
Circa 1795 - SOLD


Silver Ladle, Bright Cut, Engraved Border
Signed LR for Louis Robitaille
Frontier Silversmith, Mississippi Valley
Probably Detroit
Circa 1795, entire view

Downturned oval handle, tapering stem; deep circular bowl with swage-formed rounded drop; fine condition, signed three times-LR within rectangle. (L: 13.25")

Louis Robitaille was born in Loretteville, Quebec City in 1765; son of Pierre Robitaille and Genevieve Parant; married Louise Lacroix, April 21, 1789. Robitaille worked at several locations throughout Canada and in Detroit in 1794.
It is uncertain how long Robitaille worked in Detriot; the inventory book of Angus Mackintosh of 1819-1821 lists "Louis Robitaille silversmith" among his debtors.
A promissory note written in French exists indicating that Robitaille (LR) was commissioned five years earlier by Mr. [Registre] Loisel, a merchant in St. Louis for payable labor; Robitaille was commissioned to make a dozen silver spoons.
(October 23, 1800.) This information establishes Robitaille as the first silversmith in the region. (See Missouri's Silver Age, Silversmiths of the 1800s by Norman Mack.)
