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