Allan Adler (1917-2003) ‘Silversmith to the Stars’

Allan Adler learned his craft from his renowned father-in-law, seventh generation silversmith, Porter Blanchard (who was a founder of the Arts & Crafts Society of Southern California). In 1940, Adler opened his own shop on Hollywood Boulevard to sell the clean-lined silver flatware and hollowware he designed. Known as “silversmith to the stars”, his clients included, among others, Errol Flynn, Orson Welles, Montgomery Clift, Paul Newman, Steven Spielberg, Cher and Candice Bergen.
