I'm searching for information on Joel F Hewes and can't find anything at all. I believe he's Arts and Crafts. Can you help?

Mr. Hewes was a member of the Boston Society of Arts and Crafts and exibited in a show in the early 1920's (if my memory serves me right... I believe he resided in Pennsylvania. I will do further research on him at home and get back to you later. His designs were usually lobed bowls simple in their execution.

Thank you. I look forward to hearing if there's any more you have on him, but what you've given is already very helpful.

Joel F. Hewes was granted craftsman status in 1908 in the Boston Society of Arts & Crafts. Exibited in 1927.... Lived in Titusville, Pennsylvania.

This is all I could find about this artist.
Do you own a piece by him? I have only seen bowls by this individual. Would be interested in seeing other items made by him.

Hope this helps.

The small silver bowl I have is marked J.F.HEWES
HANDMADE
STERLING

I have also seen a bowl marked with his full name HANDMADE and STERLING one over the mark over the other.

When I get a digital camera... I will post.

Hi!

Joel F. Hewes 's successor was: Johnathan Lloyd Locke from Titusville, Penna. Mr. Locke died in the early 1970's Mr. Locke worked with him beginning around 1914 in Titusville, Penna. and when Mr. Hewes died in 1952. Lloyd Locke continued on with his craftsmanship. Mr. Locke's silver work is quite similar in design to Joel Hewes. I knew Mr. Locke personally and made some silver items myself with his guidance at his shop in Titusville in the mid 1960's.

We found this variation on the mark.

We are wondering if it is the successor mark for Johnathan Lloyd Locke? What do you think?

Looking at the bottom bowl posted on 3/8/01, it looks like there is an additional L stamped into the mark. Could this indicate that Mr. Locke actually made that bowl under the auspices of Joel Hewes?
Likewise on the Joel Hewes bowl posted earlier today, there is a C in the maker's mark. Maybe this is another apprentice mark?
