Darling′s Chicago Silversmiths, published in 1977 as a catalog of an exhibition by the Chicago Historical Society. Darling mentions dozens of silversmiths who worked in Chicago, but several stand out. One is Falick Novick, who came to America from Russia in 1893 at the age of 15, and was initially employed as a plumber′s assistant. In 1907, he moved to Chicago to work as a silversmith, but struggled for years. Novick produced copper bowls for the Kalo Shop until 1920, when it stopped selling copper items, and the heavy silver trays for which he is best known. He eventually prospered and sold his work through retail outlets such as Macy′s until he died in 1957. Novick′s mark was usually STERLING / HANDWROUGHT / BY / F. NOVICK / CHICAGO, although the city was sometimes omitted. His work, and that of Heinrich Eicher, are on a par with Kalo’s.
