Rodney Kent

Rodney Kent is the name of a line of hand-wrought aluminum giftware, popular from the 1930s through the 1950s, that was developed for Krischer Metal Products Co. of Brooklyn, N.Y.  The line was developed by Stanley Gelford, who named the line after two streets near his office: Rodney and Kent. It includes various serving pieces, many  decorated with tulips, made of an alloy of aluminum and manganese. Interestingly, some pieces are marked “Rodney Kent Silver Co.,” though they are aluminum, not silver. Some pieces had only paper tags instead of a mark.
