The other day, I mentioned acquiring another example of the Converse patent in Sterling.
And, also as mentioned, it is different than the other one in the collection.
Nicely marked with the patent date of May 9, 99, STERLING, and with the Simmons’ makers’ mark, it is pretty fabulous.
So, while technically it isn’t a double, as the handle is different, it is actually the second Simmons Brothers’ Sterling Converse in the collection.
They do make a handsome pair, although the recent arrival could use a little polishing.
Actually, both could use a little polishing.
And, placed with the Spaulding Gorham example, a nice tri-fecta.
