Collection of a SC Gentleman

Leinbach was born in Salem, North Carolina on July 7, 1796. He apprenticed under John Vogler in 1811 and requested permission in 1820 to work as a silversmith in Bethlehem, PA (likely under urging from Vogler, who traveled to Bethlehem as well and had been invited to stay on as master silversmith in 1816). Linebach did not stay in Bethlehem for long and returned to Salem to open his own silversmith shop in 1821 where he worked continuously until returning to Bethlehem in the early 1860s.

Wear to rim of each bowl; small area of pitting to each bowl; wear to monograms and mark from polishing.
