We just received the following post on the Society of American Silversmiths Silver Forum and I felt it would be useful to post it here as well.....Perhaps the exhibit will generate a catalog or reveal more about this Southern smith.

Greetings.
Portsmouth Museums, specifically the Courthouse Galleries, will be hosting an exhibit in 2004 on Early American Silversmiths with a focus on James Gaskins. Gaskins was a Norfolk/Portsmouth, VA silversmith who produced quality silver items during the late 18th-early 19th centuries.

We would like to extend an invitation to all owners of Gaskins silver to display your pieces at this upcoming exhibit for the purposes of public appreciation and the promotion of historic American material culture. We equally extend an invitation to all silver enthusiasts to come and enjoy this exhibit in 2004!

Please contact me at the given e-mail address if you would like to participate in displaying your Gaskins silver.

Thank you.

I can vouch for this project as we are loaning our Gaskins and area silver to this exhibit. It will be a wonderful venue (the historic 1846 Courthouse building in downtown Portsmouth) to highlight the talents of silversmiths in the Tidewater area and especially my favorite, James Gaskins.
